its a very comom problem
I agree...I have Marvel Yukon NIC's in my PC so the problem is not just with Realtek drivers. I have have had very solid DSL connection for a long time and since I have installed RTM version, I am getting drops/resets frequently.

I would be happy to give it a go. I know you have done this before but could you detail the problem once more (and things you have done so far) so that I dont have to re-read this thread back to the dawn of time?

Thanks, and thanks for filling in your system specs.

Well, I will summary my problem first. I installed windows 7 RTM ultimate 64x dual boot with vista. I connected my internet via my uni proxy. The network is totally fine with vista, no dropage. But with windows7, the net will work for a period (10 mins to 30 mins) then suddenly it will say "cable unplugged" or should I say network disconnected . After 1 mins or so it reconnects itself and keep doing on/off all the time. I have tried fresh installation of windows with update lasted driver of my network card Realtek, I even tried to use windows 7 recommended driver but its old compared to the one on the realtek website but either way, nothing has worked. I have also tried everything on the forum that people mention that it worked for them but up to now none proves useful to me.
Hope you can help
regard

Hi first thing I notice is that vista is 32 bit and win 7 64. Are there any other computers on you LAN? tell us about your network set up. Im assuming your disabled IPv6 in network and sharing, and have turned off RDC as well.

I have subscribed to this thread so anytime something is posted I will get email.

Let us know your results

I'm living in a dorm so I'm pretty much connected to every computer in my dorm if this is what you mean LAN network. And yes I have disabled IPv6 and sharing, basically everything people have mention on this thread. Is win 32x and 64x that much different in term of internet connection? Atm i gave up windows 7 since I cant play online ( the frequency is alot more when i'm using the net) and my mate is hating me for this lol.

Im not going to say but 64bit does have a more difficult time with drivers. video, audio, networking, etc. you could always dual boot 32 bit and 64 to see what the differences are between them. Could you ask the dorm for help with networking?

The IT in my UNi said, since windows 7 is not officially out yet so they will not help me with the situation. And besides, since my vista OS works, I dont really think it has anything to do with the network here, just the OS maybe. Should I install windows 7 32 bit then ? If that the case I will have to download it again since I only have win 64 bit

Yep you will have to download it again. What release version are you using (ie 7600). that might also be problematic. In networking what do you see? any other computers? have you set up a homegroup, or a workgroup? there are still tons of things to try if you want to.

Let mw know how I can help

I'm using windows7 RTM -7600. In the network, I see other people computer. As I said, when the network is working, It work fine like vista, then it just said cable unplugged and then refreshed itself and work again. It keeps on/off like that. I changed my workgroup name to my name since 1 guys in the IT said it could due to the difficulty of workgroup discovery with the standard name.
