Default Nic

I am having problems getting a computer to connect to the net. I ran IPconfig release, renew and flushdns. then ipconfig /all to make sure it picks up the proper IP. After I do this sometimes I can connect to the net for about 30 secs then it drops. Could this be a NIC issue?
thanx in advance for any suggestion!!

give more details... what's your ISP? do you have dial-up/broadband? Your hardware stats?

Cable internet, hmmm. I get drop offs every once in awhile. Do a powerdown of the cable modem for 30 seconds and plug the power cable back in the modem.
