Constant connection drops

ok so im running win 7 and about every 30 minutes i lose my internet the fix it does everytime is "reset the local area connection adapter" i have no clue whats going on all my drivers are up to date, it makes it really hard to play games online when getting disconnected every 30 minutes

using win 7 x64 on a ECS A780GM-A

Realtek 10/100/1000 PCI-E NIC Family Driver (onboard ethernet)

If you are sure about the drivers than most likely the router is to blame. Have you tried to update the routers firmware?

In your router settings, there should be a timeout parameter. Set that to 5 min.

Yes they make newer firmware for that router. You will need to update the firmware for certain on that particular router. Make sure you use firmware for the V2, very important as there are probably 15 different versions of that router.

It usually works best to update the firmware from the routers set up page using a .bin file. Although with a router that old it might work best to use the tomato or the DD-WRT firmware because the linksys firmware for that router is dated 07.

I would use the most recent firmware you can find for the WRT-54G. You can get the most recent DD-WRT firmware from the link below.

Which is exactly why this router has been getting connection problems since day one with Windows 7.

Try the DD-WRT firmware, it's dated late 09, the link for it is in my last post.
