Windows 7: Windows 7 Internet Issue (Wireless)

Windows 7 Internet Issue (Wireless)

Now if I wired my laptop to my modem then I would not have a problem with my internet connection. But since the modem is like 30 feet away, I tend to just go wireless. Now I used to have Windows Vista Home Premium before I installed Windows 7 RC 7100 and my wireless connection was perfect. But now it would cut off after the first couple minutes and I would have to reboot my laptop to get my connection back.

On my Device Manager > Network Adapter, I have Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter so I suppose that is my issue. I already went into my services.msc and made my WLAN Autoconfig to start Automatically.

My Broadcom 802.11g wireless wouldn't work after I installed Windows 7 RC 7100. Today when I checked Windows Update (through cable) there was a Broadcom 802.11g wireless driver update under optional. Downloaded and installed now my wireless is working.
