I just did the driver removal and it installed the June 2010 Realtek driver, which is the same exact one I am having issues with, as was the October(?) ones before updating it earlier. I also checked the BIOS for AI NET, and it is set to disabled.

Edit #2: Just dropped again :|

just going to put this out there..

but have you turn off the power management on the NIC you are using?
if not, i think when it is left idle it will Disconnect you.. unless this is a random disconnection problem, then i would point to your ISP/Line Quality. there is alot of things that can play a part in connection dropping.. most of the time it is Router,Ethernet Cable,NIC card & settings,Drivers ect

if you can test this on another computer to see if it does this, then you could rule out the computer side, and the work on the router/cable ect..

alos you could try Opendns servers.
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220


put them in your router and save. see if that is any better if you ain't doen this already ;/

just my 0.01 worth..

also check this out as said already, it could be the IPv6...

I already ruled out power management on the NIC as I turned it off 3 days ago, as I went disconnect free up until last night...which was kinda strange if you ask me.

On the OpenDNS, I may give that a shot if the 4.2.2.6 and 4.2.2.7 DNS servers do not help at all.

Good thing I have spare ethernet cables to test this theory to see if it's this computer alone and not the router.

On IPv6, I may have unchecked it once..or do I have to uninstall it off the adapter?

And on that last option, I don't think I've done that as I may try that if all else fails.

Okay, a small update...the laptop ethernet connection did not drop, only my desktop...which means it is definitely isolated to this computer.

IPV6 is disabled yet I still dropped.

Edit #2: Did this at reply 1 to see if that helps at all.

Okay, after a week of no dropping, it decides to drop in the morning hours when I was asleep. Gah.

I am close to giving up at this point after all the things I have done to try and curb this issue..

EDIT: There was something I noticed but it has the gateway's IP under the DNS server listing..is that normal.

Going with manual configuration right now to see if anything helps...

So far I have not dropped at all since configuring a static IP for this machine..if I can surpass 7 days or more without any interruption, I will be happy and would consider this issue resolved (unless anything else pops up).

Sorry for bumping a 3 and a half month old thread but these issues have popped up again but at a slightly less annoying way...I do have the little disconnect but I don't need to go to Network & Sharing as it gets restored in less than 30 seconds.

Irritating? Yes. Do I want to permanently stop this, hell yes I do.

Not a whole lot has changed systemwise since it started happening less than a week ago. Any help would be appreciated again.
