Windows 7: Windows 7 crashes when internet connection lost.

Windows 7 crashes when internet connection lost.

I have Cable One and the connectivity is less than constant. Whenever my internet connection stops working, not my home network, my computer stops responding. There isn't an error or anything. Also a power cycle on the modem, not the router, will cause my computer to freeze as well. I am suspecting my wireless card. It is an Atheros AR5005GS, it is a bit old and wasn't exactly made for Windows 7; however Windows Update has the driver for it, and you would think that it should work if Microsoft provides it.
