Reboot the modem?

Or you could complain to your ISP. What you're describing shouldn't be happening.

Your Network connection can have an icon in the system tray [a check box from the connection's 'properties'].

When your browser drops off - its actually the Network connection that is lost. Right click the network icon, and select the "reset" (?). That re-establishes the cable modem's network connection to the ISP
