Wireless Internet Stops working in Build 7048

For some reason my wireless internet connection goes to "Limited Activity" after just a few minutes of use on Build 7048. Once I've restarted it will work again.....for a few minutes, that is......then it goes back to "Limited Activity". I am currently using a Wireless Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card Network Adapter.
I have tried to roll back driver the wireless adapter driver but I am getting same error.
I've since reverted back to build 7022 with works fine with my adapter. Is anyone else having this problem? If so....has anyone found a remedy?

I have installed both on dual boot.

hmm
is this a 32 or 64 7022?
also have you tried both the WU the base 7 and the Vista drivers?
if you have then there might be way to workaround the issue so that every few minutes it disable and re-enables the adapter...
this last resort should be avoided since it might use up to many unnecessary cpu cycles and might take a 1 min or 2 (at the most) to get a functional connection (which might cut into those those precious minutes that you might have...)
also this will interupt all software that is accessing the net
my advise: if you have tried all sort of drivers and made sure you disabled every sleep setting (or power setting that has to do with the Wireless adapter) then just use something that works....

mememto there is a PM (power management) tab...
check to see if "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is checked
if it is uncheck it...
also be sure to check any of the advance tab for any options on power and see if that helps...
also if there are options in the power settings (in the control panel) check if any Wireless options related to sleep or changing performance of this adapter...
