    More details needed:
    • What type of modem
    • What type of internet connection do you have
    • What version of OSX are you using

    If resetting your modem and not the Mac fixes it, I'd blame your modem as the most likely culprit.

    The next time it goes out, just restart the Mac and see if that fixes it, if it doesn't, again I'd blame the modem.
    In that case, the first step I'd try is leaving it unplugged overnight to see if it resets it. Also check to see if it has a reset button instead of just unplugging it.

    Ran into a bunch of issues with my connection on Uverse. Went to OpenDNS and eventually got a airport extreme base station because of the issues with the 2wire modem I was supplied. but yes, we need more details.

    the issue is with the laptop because my two other PC's internet works fine when my connect gets stuck or goes out.

    I'm running Lion Version 10.7.2
    cable modem

    You say it's a wired connection? Have you tried changing the ethernet cable if so?
