Boxster 2002 alternator problem

Just installed 2 month ago a new battery and yesterday after a long ride, I was not able to restart the engine...
After a full recharge during the night I was able to use the car today...
But after 3,4 restart, slowly the battery was gone again !!!
How can I check if it's the alternator or a relay ?
Belt and connectors seem perefect.

Most of the auto parts chain stores usually will check your alt. for free. You might want to give your local one a call first.

Any instrument panel warnings, like "generator"?
