if you are on AOL, then its possibly a case of AOL being rubbish, either buy your own router, which will help, or change ISPs. AOL has this problem where every so often it forgets your existence. re-installing aol (after completely purging the system of it before) as well as cleaning all connections will help, an installing new locations is a quick fix, though it doesnt always work/last.
