Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1

Open network and sharing center, click Change adapter settings (Top left), double click your Wireless Adapter, Hit properties, Double click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), set both options to Obtain and address automatically (IP and DNS). Click ok and close all windows.

If troubleshooting still says it can't ping the DNS servers try repeating the steps above but set the second option to Use the following DNS server addresses:
Prefered DNS server:
Alternate DNS server:
And try accessing the Internet again.

Windows XP Professional, Windows 7 Home Premium with SP1

Thought it has worked for me but after a while it went back to disconnecting again :s
So it isn't just the DNS here. Some Windows 7 bug??
