Windows 7: Network Adapter Keeps Disconnecting/resetting

Network Adapter Keeps Disconnecting/resetting

So recently my network adapter keeps randomly disconnecting, and it's been really annoying. If I use the built-in windows troubleshooter, however, it fixes the problem, but having to run the troubleshooter every time I get dropped (every 10-20 minutes or so), gets pretty tedious. Is there a permanent solution?

Things I've tried already: Updating my drivers, and turning off the "allow this device to be turned off to save power" option

Any help would be sweet, thanks.
