Windows 7: PPPoE Connection Drop

Win 7
PPPoE Connection Drop

Hey guys,

I am trying to solve this problem for 2 days now, reading through this forum and 1000 of google entries, NOTHING helped and I am not a PC-beginner.
I installed Win 7 yesterday on the 4-year old pc at my girlfriends. Everything worked fine except sound which didn't work out of the box but I got a driver. The next problem is the PPPoE connection, which drops randomly aprox. every 10 minutes or so. There is no router between the pc and the isp, an rj-45 cable goes directly to the pc from a switch I believe. We got a user and password to connect and that's how I set up the connection which worked fine, or so I thought. I also disabled IPv4 and 6 for the network card, didnt't help at all.
What I didn't try is to fill in the DNS server, but I don't believe that it makes any difference.

I added the everest report as attachment.

Some details:

Win 7 6.1.7600
Pentrium 4 3Ghz
Intel Grantsdale-G i915G Chipset
Geforce 6600
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
