    Hi,
    my mac started itself to lose ethernet connection when i go away for 10 mins or more.
    When i come back it gets connection if i move the mouse only.

    it's because your computer is asleep clearly.
    you move your mouse waking up your computer and therefor reconnecting to the internet.
    It would be sweet if someone knew a way to make it so when your computer goes to sleep it dosen't disconnect from the internet.

    Look in System Preferences -> Energy Saver. You can tell it never to sleep the computer or turn the hard drives off in there.
