I thought you said the firmware on it was from 07, now it's changed to 09 in the last few minutes or did you update it just a minute ago? Is this a wired or wireless connection?

Oh ok I was confused there, yes I would test out the new firmware for a day or so and see how it goes. Please report back in and let me know if it works any better for you.

Of course you must, make it beg for mercy. If it can't take the stress then hopefully a better driver will come along or driver adjustments will be needed.

Wi-fi won't work as well as the wired connection but pretty much anything is better than a dropped connection.

The problem is that most every LAN-eithernet driver for your board is for XP - Vista and not Windows 7. I've been looking for awhile now. Maybe the manufacture's site will have a better or newer one.
