Windows 7: Internet keeps cutting out

Internet keeps cutting out

So I updated my network drivers less then a week ago to the latest drivers on realteks site: Realtek and ever since then my internet cuts out from time to time, sometimes its once a day, sometimes its three times in an hour; and its the entire internet when it happens, web, AIM, games, Vent all go down. It never happened once before new drivers and it started happening right after new drivers so I'm lead to believe its the new drivers. I don't want to roll back my drivers b/c my old ones were causing me to BSOD and I'll take disconnects over BSODs. I've heard of other people having these problems but for all the internet searching I've done all I've heard is "update your drivers" which is what I just did. If anyone has an idea about a setting to modify in the driver or something (my roommate said he had to do this when he was having this problem but he has a different network driver then me) I'd greatly appreciate it

Its actually a wired connection. Usually what I do to fix it is just unplug myself from the wall then plug myself back in.

roll back the driver from device manager until they produce something stable ?

no need to upgrade from the previous unless you need a feature or it's playing up

Well thats the thing, the old drivers were causing a bluescreen with TCPIP.sys like once a day. I'm still getting the BSOD's with the new drivers but its maybe once a week now, not once a day.
