thanks for helping. I am using a wired Ethernet connection. I am using a Adsl router that is wired to a wireless router and from there is wired into my pc.

If the DSL modem is directly connected to the PC via ethernet, why does it matter if it shuts off?

How is the computer and router and DSL modem getting power? Through a surge-protector or battery backup?

Have you changed the way things are configured recently?

Try unplugging the router from wherever it's currently plugged in and move it to a standard wall outlet and see if the issue continues.

thanks for the help. removing the router from the surge protector took care of the problem.

Not a problem :) 

Alot of surge protectors do this as a fail safe to prevent over voltage or to save energy when not being used.
