While unfortunately there's no crashdumps in your archive file (try seeing if there's any in Windows/Minidump directory) I do see in the syslog a very consistent crash pattern, which leaves me to believe there's a driver bug somewhere.

You'll want to update your Broadcom LAN drivers, your Atheros wifi drivers and your audio drivers since all those share resources with each other. I am particularly suspicious about your Broadcom drivers since they are dated prior to official retail release of Windows 7. Test wired connection afterwards to confirm it fixes the bug.


Syslog shows up 0x7f (UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP) bugcheck with 0x8 subcode (double fault). Most likely this is caused by a thread overrunning its allotted stack, which often is a case of a driver bug.
