This is not a Windows 7 problem. If that was the case we would all be having this problem. This has come up many times before and the fix was almost always related to the eithernet drivers being used or the router.

If you can fill out your system specs and also give me the model number and version number of your router we can sort this out.

I differ from Chev in that certified drivers installed in Win 7 in fact do make this a Win 7 problem. It would not happen in XP.
But agree we need more information on how you are set up. What kind of network are you running, DHCP settings, sharing settings, etc. The bad news is that Win 7 is difficult to network at times, the good news is that many of us here have made about all the mistakes possible so we can help.

The biggest mistakes I've made was to blame the Op system for these types of problems. I never seem to get anywhere doing that.

Driver problems the number one choice followed closely by router incompatiblity problems or even third party networking programs have been known to cause this problem. In some cases bios updates have been known to fix this problem.

We have no way of knowing if the drivers have been certified because the Op hasn't posted any system specs let alone driver versions. Those possible issues will be sorted out as soon as the Op replys I hope.

I have in fact personally fixed this same problem on many occasions and it was either a router or a driver problem in the past. I tend to stick to whats been working in the past for obvious reasons.

Microsoft answers also has addressed this problem by booting to safe mode or doing a clean boot to eliminate the possiblity of a third party program causing this problem.
