Windows 7: Internet Dropping At Random??

Windows 7 64bit RC
Internet Dropping At Random??

ok so my net will just drop on me. i go to troubleshoot and it tries and then(see picture).

my router and modem are fine..ive tried without the router and the same thing happens. my nvidia network drivers are up to date. and I'm pretty sure this isnt my providers fault because this started the moment I installed Win7. its the RC btw.

if you need any more specs or details just let me know.

any help is appreciated. :)

Windows 7

I've been experiencing this since RC2. Now I'm on the retail version of Home Premium I have exactly the same problem.

Every reboot causes loss of Internet and many drop-outs (as described by you) during Internet usage.

I know it's not my ISP or Box, it seems to be related to Windows 7 and Nvidia Nforce.

I've tried all the different Nvidia Nforce drivers and still have this extremely frustrating problem.

To date, it is my one and only 'f**k W7' problem!
