Thank you for your reply. You had it right about the problem having to
do with my IP address changing. I had set up a dynamic IP address and
had set my router to constantly update the IP address. It wasn't doing
that, so I just downloaded a DNS updater program called DeeEnEs and it
constantly updates my DNS every 10 minutes. That seemed to have solved
