My internet has been disconnecting itself after a couple of hours for some months. It started some months ago when the internet cables were being upgraded in my university dorm. Something happened to the cables and everyone on the floor who uses a phone jack and ethernet cable was experiencing disconnections, slow speed and streaming issues. The ISP provider resolved some of the problems, but I kept having disconnections, which were spaced out between several hours and were fixed by renewing the dhcp lease in system preferences.
It wasn't that serious, but now I've moved to a new residence building which is under the same internet provider and still getting disconnected. I've tried another cable and it doesn't help.
Any ideas on what the real problem is?

Not much can be done here other than setting up a new WPA2 Personal Network. Take it up with the ISP.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
