Windows 7: "Ethernet" Connection Drop

Windows 7 x86 and x64 - RTM

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.
I also suggest trying the x86 version. I have a dual-boot of x86 and x64 Win 7 on my ASUS p5w-dh-deluxe (with the Marvel nics) and I "seem" to have my major problems when I boot up the x64 version. But frankly, I have 5 different Win 7 computers booting on my home network and have seen this mysterious drop on each one...usually when I boot.

windows 7

but will x86 recognise all 4Gb ram of mine. Since I have x86 vista dual boot, i'm pretty sure it cant address all of my ram. But I will try to get it when I am back home... been spending alot internet credit on x64 RTM and RC already >.<

We might be looking in the wrong place

What anti Virus are people using that have this problem?

Test time people
Turn off the AV for a while during your most frequent outages:)

Win7 64 bits FR

I didn't have a connection drop since I installed WinXP drivers.

I will probably try the latest Realtec driver when doing a fresh install for 7600.

OS: windows 7 RTM ultimate 64x dual boot with Vista business 86x

seems tha most ppl using x64 and playing games is having problems. On more forums than you can believe. x64 is causing problems.

I have 2 laptops with Marvel NIC drivers, and NO problesm, yes all my systems are x86. I also have 2 systems on Realtek NIC drivers, Yes x86.
No problems and Yes I do play some games...
No, I do not use X64. you might try that an see if x86 gives you the problems.

Yes, you can utilize all 4GB of RAM, there is a patch for x86...
now would you rather use all the memory or lose the Internet connection.
They hate you for dropping Internet connections, not because you have 4GB ram. I hate you cause you have 4GB ram. I only have 3GB.

windows 7

Is there any1 in this forum using win7 x64 and doesnt have this problem? If he is a pro can you come here and answer us some question. Eventhough it is hard to believe that MS really made people hate x64 but It seems it is the case. X64 failed. (I might need to wait couple weeks until I can dl again >.< damn X64)
