Intermittent drop of wired connection on Windows 7
My PC is wired a router which is directly connected to the phone line. Wireless connectivity turned on.
I had this setup with using WinXP already, after switching to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit i experience that every now and then I find Internet access is not working anymore.
Basically it's the same problem as described in more detail on
Windows 7 intermittently drops wired connection
The router is a Netgear DG834G. I suspected the problem to be with the router and luckily i still had a Netgear DM111P. This does not have wireless connectivity and everything works fine without any problems.
I then received a new router from my ISP Vodafone, also offering wireless connectivity.
Using this Router i'm experiencing the same disconnects as with the Netgear DG834G.
So it doesn't seem to be a router problem as i have 2 Routers, both supporting Wireless, one of them brand new, where i experience this issue. Then i have one router without wireless where everything is working smoothly. No idea if the additional wireless functionality has something to do with it or if it's just coincidence.It doesn't make any difference if a wireless device is connected to the Routers.
