Im betting its just your user account that this occurs, create a new user account and browse a few websites and see if Windows still reports disconnected otherwise your laptop's driver software either disabled the Network List Service or Wlan/Wired auto-config services.

Each laptop and each manufacturer uses different software for managing their drivers and hardware and as such theres no standard way for me to tell you what to open and what to look for

Probably best if you use System Restore and select a restore point from last week before this problem started happening

Try doing this which has been known to fix this type of problem in the past.
1.) Shut down your PC.
2.) Unplug the power cord and push start button to drain all power from the board.
3.) If you have a laptop, remove the battery as well.
4.) Walk away from the problem for at least 30 minutes.
5.) When you return, reconnect battery and power cord.
5.) Start as usual. It might also help to reset the router.

Lets do some more R&D. Cool buddy!! Follow one by one.
1. Do you have any 3P firewall? If yes, disable them and check.
2. Open DM, Uninstall your card(ethernet/wireless). Scan for hardware changes, let 7 detect the card and install the necessary drivers. Once done, restart and check.
3. Open DM, right click on the card, properties, power management tab, uncheck allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Apply, Ok, Restart and check.
4. Take a snip of your ethernet card properties, advanced page from DM and attach here. We need to check whether duplex ratings are specified.
5. Final resort, reboot, press F8, select safe mode with networking and check whether the issue persists.

Al the very best!!!

This is my final try buddy..hope this should help. If not, live with the issue or throw the damn thing out JUZ KIDDIN

Click on ur network icon, open network and sharing centre.
Click Troubleshoot problems.
First try the diagnose of Internet connections. It wil take some time. Check whether 7 shows any issue. If yes, post it here.
Second try with Network adapters. I presume, there should be some issue getting diagnosed. If yes, post it here. I presume, there should be some problem with your DNS servers. Lets c, wat 7 has to say.

If nothing worked, I give up buddy.
