Problem with my internet connection and SmartFTP

I have a problem with my internet connection and SmartFTP
Hope this is the right place to post this, and I hope I get more help here than I did at the SmartFTP forums.
For the last couple of days I have had a major problem with SmartFTP:
every single time I even just open Smart FTP my Internet connection dies. Kaput, gone completely until I restart both my computer and modem router.
It just seems to be the internet connection too, as far as I can tell it stays connected to the network
, and it only kills the internet on my computer, the modem will still show the internet connection and the other networked computers still have internet access.

It may be sad that I'm keeping count, but over 3-4 days I have had to restart my computer 43 times because of this problem....and at over 4 minutes each time (slow work computer) that time wasted soon builds up.

Post the system information from the menu: Help->About "System Information" in SmartFTP.
