Try Disabling the local connection, and then reinstall the drivers.

So it works for some time after a fresh install? Are automatic updates turned on or off? I have had a problem in the past where an XP system kept getting the video driver from Windows updates and over writing the newer driver from the manufacturer. Windows update driver didn't work but kept getting installed. Just an idea.... turn auto update off?

My laptop has the same card, working perfectly. Realtec cards normally are really reliable. I'm not so sure we are searching the answer in a right place.

Please could you tell the mark and the model of your router, let's see if we find something there.

No, no. I meant uninstall and reinstall the driver. Make sure you get all the old driver off, then reinstall it.

You bring up a good point, one I usually forget. The card may just be broken........

The fact that I live on campus and connected to the UNi server, I dont think I know what kind of router the uni use and even if i know, it is impossible for me to fix it. @zigzag: well, i saw that there are a few of people have this connection droppage just like me, the net working fine but then It says that "network cable unplugged" then replug itself, and it keeps doing that the whole time.

lol, I'm telling you that the card is working fine. 100% sure of it since if it was broken, vista would have the same problem wouldnt it? And besides what do you want to know about my internet card? My NIC: Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P). Just one point I have mention that, if i go to the network and sharing, click on full map, the network disconnects immidiately, i just wonder if by chance, win7 when it refreshing, it also try to refresh the network full map which cause disconnected?
