Windows 7: "Ethernet" Connection Drop

Here's my setup:
Asus P5B motherboard with on-board Realtek LAN card

The PC works fine under Windows XP, but I get disconnections, especially when the LAN card is idle, under Windows 7 (build 7100).

I have tried all possible software, driver, and configuration solutions I found on the web, to no avail.

So I decided to go the hardware way and bought a good Intel LAN card and disabled the on-board card. This did not solve the problem under Win7, but the PC still works flawlessly under Windows XP.

One workaround I found is to have a media player constantly playing streaming radio. That way the connection drops much less frequently.

My conclusion is that Windows 7, in combination with some specific hardware (maybe the chipset of the motherboard, maybe the type and/or firmware of the internet router) will disconnect when the network is idle for some seconds.

Any help or comments will be greatly appreciated.
Well, 7100 was BETA and had many problems.. depend on how you have your system configured. 1st thing is find all your adapter connections, and make sure they unchecked "allow this device to turnoff and save power"
DEFAULT settings.
Some specs would help also.

I actually think your problem is - YOU HAVE A CORRUPT - HACKED - VERSION OF WIN 7. WHILE YOUR USING A LEGIT VERSION OF VISTA.

Im sure I do not have all the same different systems you have but I can find several ppl that have similar to you. POST your SPECS. and lets us try an help.

PS: If your Win 7 version is not LEGIT then so be it.. there are many many illegal versions of Win 7 that are available for DL that do not pass verification. Sorry that your version seems to be.
I literally have no idea how you can be accusing people of using cracked Windows for their ethernet trouble when you're in a 43-page thread on the very same issue. I am nonplussed. What's different about his problem from everybody else's?

Instead of trying an older version. I suggest you move up to a newer version. 2.0 and make sure you run the requested TEST so that uTorrent can properly set itself.

The difference is I have never in my 27 yrs of computer related work found 2 exactly the same problems with two exactly same systesm.
IMHO only a bafoon would state " I have exactly the same problem".
and both problems are never fixed with the same FIX.
There are many different programs with which to TEST - Near Identical devices or memory sticks or or or or to tell the difference. even the distance in the DSL cable or phone connection or static or noise filter is different...

PS: There are suggestions of over 80 to 100 million illegal copies of Win 7 being used. That equals a lot of hacked malware trojan viris infested OS being use.

Ah, so that's what you were reacting to. Wise from customer service years I disregarded that as hyperbole.
