But I also downloaded a monitor program that keeps track of everytime it crashes. The microsoft support dosent open anything for Win 7 untill the release in october, so im pretty clueless.

Should I try filling in the IP, subnet and gateway manually? Or you know where to check next?

Jag visste inte att du är svensk. Har redan glömt min svenska, men det är rolig att prova om jag fortfarande kan minnas nånting.

You can try that. Important thing to remember is not to cause IP conflicts. To avoid this, open the routers web interface and see what IP's are currently used (DHCP Client list in my BElkin router, something llike that in yours).

Just now i got another error message at the same time as "the default gateway is not available"- Posted some picks of it. It has happend before, at the same time as the gateway thing. They come in pairs sometimes. Either I just get the "the default gateway" msg.. or the both together.

Just so you will know before: Windows 7 does not support WEP. So if and when you add a Windows 7 computer to your home network you will need to use WPA2-PSK (sometimes referred to as WPA2-Personal) instead of WEP. Doesn't affect your current situation.

If I understand correctly, your Vista computers maintain connection even when this computer drops the connection and gives these errors. That would indicate to me the NIC card. I have experienced similar with integrated devices and have gotten better results using the NIC driver from the motherboard web site over the default windows driver or a generic realtek driver. Since you have not filled in your computer specs, we cannot know what manufacturer or model of motherboard you have. Do suppose a Swede could help out the techs here and fill in your computer specs?

Cheers!

I have a Gigabyte EP45-DS3L.

But do you think the solution might be a extern network card?

I think the solution would be to install the latest chipset driver package from Gigabyte for your motherboard.

However, if a NIC performs better than the motherboard network, that would tend to support either a hardware (motherboard) issue or an issue with the motherboard network driver?

You could try to set static IP instead of automatic.

In the network properties set all of the next by hand.

IP 192.168.0.50 (or any other IP you are sure is free)
Sub 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.0.1

DNS1 192.168.0.1
DNS2 leave empty

Good luck

I have the same problem.. Linksys ADSL2 gateway AG241 - Wired Modem/Router combo, Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Driver, Dynamic IP (Automatic)

This has been going on since my Win 7 install on Sunday, and I can't find any fix either... If I try a Static IP, it Immediately disconnects.... Otherwise, with Dynamic IP, it disconnects every few minutes.. then on Sunday night after hours of fiddling around it finally stayed on the rest of the night... But next day after I got home from work and turn computer back on... Same Same as we say here in Thailand.

Now I have to reset the driver (Diagnose the connection) every 5 minutes or less, just to stay on and post this.

HELP... PLEASE !!!!!
