Thanks, but why would all these problem occur in Windows 7 but not Vista?? Is Windows 7 more susceptable to these type issues??

That poses a very good question? I no longer have that WISP. but I can
get access to a WISP connection and they run Vista.... where as I have
laptop same as only has Win 7. Let me see when I can run some tests on this..

Very interesting and I will get back to you on this.

woops sorry. what is th MTU set at.? you might try lower it below 1492.

That is a good point. We would need to know who is using uTorrent here. If everybody does, then the problem is there (the association of Win7 and uTorrent, not uTorrent itself).

Windows 7 7100
 
 
7100 network issue, imagine that

Hi,

It looks like I am not the only one having these type of issues but I network of a Sprint Sierra 598u. Everything has always worked fine until my genius brother talked me into switching my OS to the 7100 build from vista. I network two computers sharing the internet and files. I thought and then out of nowhere the second computer wouldn't connect to the internet. Checked the onboard NIC drivers they were fine, nothing. Switched all ethernet calbes out. Nothing, Installed new netgear gig nic card. Nothing, purchased new netgear switch, nothing. Long story short, somehow in the network settings and such I can see the "internet gateway device" and the other computer. It says that it is an unidentified network with no internet access. So when you run the cheap As* network configure tool it says does not have valid ip config on e the second computer. I even hooked up my WAP54g acces point which is a plug and play as it gets and it doesn't get an ip or nor can I connect to it. I only run windows firewall and it is not that. I am sure guys probably already have the answer by this point so please save me a trip to the gas station before I take a match to the whole thing!!! Thanks Kevin

Chatted with a TECH from the Local WISP this area...
running 700 Mhz Wireless WISP.
he stated for those who have a internet problem and using Vista or Win 7.
relate to this page on how to manually set your connection.

United Telcom - Wireless Internet FAQ

This should also work if you system is 3.65 Mhz WISP. make sure your MTU is reset to PPPOE specs or if possible lower by 8 until packet loss stops.
If the problem still is CRAPPY or constant low speeds or PAcket loss.
it is due to the MODULE installed on the tower. He had to RESET the older MODULEs quite often due to PACKET LOSS.

Don't know - but you might follow the link a RESET your system if possible like mentioned.
At different times, if packet loss is grossly to high, unplug your MODEM for over 3m this allows a Modem reset to clean. If you do not need 24/7 unplug and let it reset.

I just got this from Billion Admin


But I just found out right now its not a Windows 7 problem
mine also shuts down with my computer turned off

So the thing to do is join you Routers forum site
put all you details of your problem logs etc
& wait for a response

This is mine below


Your log is just telling you that PPP connection is being lost/reconnected, check this out with provider.

Check for faulty cabling/filters & ensure that all devices attached to line are filtered.

What are current attenuation & snr.

Consult the Admin of your router
give them all detail log details etc
Hope this helps

Here I know the problem is not the Internet connection, because I got 3 PC connected to the router and when the problem happens on my computer, the 2 others are all fine.

Thanks for the followup but I don't understand how it could be packet loss or poor connections since everything works perfect in Vista.

Identical hardware behaves significantly different between Vista and W7.

I can't help but think there's still some Ethernet driver or OS bugs. With launch approaching in a week or so I'm going to wait it out.

[/quote]could you fill in your specs. What version of Win 7 are you using? If Beta then Yes, I do hope 7600 fill fix it. I had major problems with 7100 RC1, but then all problems were removed when I went to 7104.
Currently using 7600 Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate and NO problems at this time. so lots of different hardware and devices. testing both wired and wireless.

*Advanced* driver setting may be the culprit.

I got mine to stop randomly dropping connection by disabling "Receive side scaling" in the "Advanced" tab of the driver page.

Not sure if this is available for ALL ethernet adapters, or just the ones from Nvidia.

If your card's driver has such a setting, try disabling and see if the random disconnects go away.

There has been considerable re-working of the IP stack in 7, and as a result bugs like this are not unexpected.
