Windows 7: Net on W7 wont stay connected, but Fine on XP

Net on W7 wont stay connected, but Fine on XP

Ok, heres the situation..

My computer - HP Pavilion P7-1010. Windows 7 64bit home edition..

My Laptop - HP mini 1000 with XP

I play this game, Trickster Online.. and they have a "stay connected for 100+hrs" event..

On my laptop with XP, it will stay connected until I Disconnect it.

On my PC, it will stay connected for like 5-20mins, then log everything out. EVEN if i am still using the internet.. (its not Idle!)

I've tried the following:

-Turned off "Disable this to save power"
-Turned all my Windows power settings to "never hibernate, no screensaver, etc" even no shutting off of the monitor.
-Tried Wireless and wired, (Both same results)
-Reformating the computer to get rid of any rogue programs messing the net up
-Updateing drivers and Windows
Is there maybe some weird option in the settings for Windows 7 broadband card?
or maybe some weird setting in windows 7 to cut my net after so long?

Ive searched everywhere and cant find anything

THANKS SO MUCH Also - Heres some info

Welcome to SF,

I'd start disabling Start up Apps and Services that are not being used. You may do this from Start and type msconfig.

Are you using a 3rd party wireless software?
