Windows 7: ethernet connection dropping after an hour

ethernet connection dropping after an hour

hi friends
i am using a dell inspiron 6400 laptop loaded with windows 7 os. since i have loaded this os i am facing with a network connection problem. when i connect to the internet ti connects without any problem and i am able to use it for about an hour and a half after which my connection gets dropped. suddenly my network indicator shows that i am having limited or no connectivity and i am not able to load any web pages and all my torrents and chat clients go offline. this is a very big issue for me since i put torrents for downloading overnight and when i wake up i find that they have not been running the whole night.
i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my network driver but to no use. my isp is Airtel and no issues like this have been faced by my roommates who use windows xp. please suggest me a solution to this problem
thank you
Abin Mathew

I just got this from Billion Admin


But I just found out right now its not a Windows 7 problem
mine also shuts down with my computer turned off



Your log is just telling you that PPP connection is being lost/reconnected, check this out with provider.

Check for faulty cabling/filters & ensure that all devices attached to line are filtered.

What are current attenuation & snr.

Consult the Admin of your router
give them all detail log details etc
Hope this helps

hi man
i appreciate the effort but i dont think this is any hardware problem.in fact i am sure that its a problem with my windows installation. my roomamte is also sharing the same connection but he never has this problem . he is using windows xp. previously i also used windows xp and i didnt have this problem until i installed windows 7. so if u come up with any solution please let me know
thanks a lot
