Windows 7: Have to disable and enable network adapter to fix internet

Have to disable and enable network adapter to fix internet

Only recently I have had issues with internet drop outs which I thought were to do with my router but
if I disable the Local area connection/adapter and then enable it again the internet starts working.

I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled with a new one but it still seems to happen maybe twice a day.

I have a z87 g45 motherboard, I'm not sure if its the killer network manager that comes with the driver
that may be causing problems

I got these 2 errors in event viewer, Both of these happened exactly when the internet went down

Name resolution for the name timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

The name "WORKGROUP :1d" could not be registered on the interface with IP address The computer with the IP address did not allow the name to be claimed by this computer.
