Help - Problem with wired connection and Windows 7

I recenlty did a full wipe and reinstall of windows 7... the problem... my internet connection works, however after a few minutes or so the connection drops (but my connection still shows its connected). When I check out my Full Network map I get this wierd "?" between my router and PC:




Anyone know what the heck that is? This is driving me insane. If I reboot my system everything becomes fine:



But the above problem eventually comes back after a few minutes. HELP!

Hi and welcome

I assume you are running Homegroup and IPv6. On some systems IPv6 causes random drops, slow downs, and general connectivity probs. IF you are using homegroup, it is fairly painless to change over to workgroup which doenst use IPv6. Just go into networjk and sharing. create a new network based on teh workgroup model. When it is setup and working you can dis able IPv6 and kill the homegroup

Let Us know if you need help with that

I just recently created Homegroup so maybe that is it. How do I create a new network?

I go to "Set up a new connection or network" -> "Set up a new network"

After that I can't do anything since nothing comes up on the dialog box for me to go to the next screen.
