Windows 7: "Ethernet" Connection Drop

Snuffy, why do you assume we are "all" using Vista drivers? I've been quite clear that my motherboard Realtek LAN is using Windows 7 supplied drivers and is having the random loss-of-internet-until-reboot problem. And I think others are in the same boat.

If your ISP does not honor IPv6, that is the problem.... either call and ask they add it to be recognized or DO NOT INSTALL IT.
AND stop trying to use it with your P2P programs...

I have an Asus A8V-XE and VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter with Vista drivers
One example and I was sure I say other postss which indicated Vista Drivers, NOT implying every body was using Vista Drivers.

I think I will wait until they have a stable release and buy that.
I have found this to fix some network connections:
1. open network and sharing center
2. delete the win7 auto made connection.
3. click connect to the internet. #2 on my list.
4. follow all instruction to set your connection your way.
in Options open and click advanced, that is where you will find you can add your ISP login name and password. enter and save.

I have always rebooted and at that time it adds like 2 or 3 sec. to the connect time. so far I have applied this FIX to 3 different ISP's locally.

this may work for you snuffy, and tho i havent tried, if it does, good info and homework. I guess i am just about disgusted with this issue. This is supposed to be RC. This just doesnt affect me or a few ppl, or just connecting/disconnecting that is the only problem as far as the whole networking area of 7 has been built, but not debugged. This should work "out of the box", instead of having to jump thru hoops, unless it was a driver installation trick issue to get to work with a beta OS, that i could understand. But i think its more than that. For example, the troublshooter scanned my driversetup.exe that is a vista version driver, and recommended that it be run under XP SP2 comp mode. Now go figure that. I can tell that from beta to "RC" aka beta2, that they atleast have been doing some work on it - tho they didnt complete what they were working on in time for a rushed release.

I am within inches of resorting back to the 7000 full time, transfer some sounds and backgrounds, and one really couldnt tell (excluding a few minimal things like new customizations of start menu, yet thats incomplete as well, ie; download link is not to download library). Alot of T's werent crossed and I's dotted when handing in this "RC". Yea there's supposed to be bugs and all, but for little things like i stated, and then the critical updates for the IE crash fix 2 days later, and then the critical root fix a few days after that.

I know i have stated this a few other times in other threads, but MS should really step up and take responsibility for such carelessness they sent out to the public and asked to test. Like test driving a car, and their own special transmission doesnt work with the car(IE), and they forgot to include the safety belt(root), and a few nuts and bolts(networking, libraries, etc) before sending you on your way to try out something they themselves didnt obviously test themselves against different environments. How long did the first leak come out on the net until you finally seen the first official beta go public? now how much longer from beta to RC (testing time)? follow me here? More work, concentrated work, careful work, double checked work, was put into the making of the beta than any other. And it shows IMO. When XP went RC1 the dreaded soundblaster problem was all but solved in most cases, the driver cache was pretty much covered. It was then time to just ice the cake before retail. Tis why today XP has more users than Vista. Just another example of a rushed project gone awry that had incompatibility issues, did ppl switch then? Nope, and that was the main reason why, be it drivers, or applications. Atleast they figured out this time that the need for application backwards compatibility is a must for them to be able to persuade ppl to upgrade their system, network etc to a newer OS. Will it be worth the headache, is the question everyone will have to end up answering once again.

Win 7 RC1
 
 

Update!!!

I ended up going to a local store and buying a PCI Network Adapter for $14.99.

It WORKS!!!!

I've had no connection drops whatsoever and I'm constantly uploading.

So far, I've uploaded 2gb on Backblaze with no dropouts.

I bought a DLink, 100BaseT.

I let 7100 install the default drivers without being connected to the Internet.

I run Win 7 RC1 64 bit on AM2 6000, Nvidia 8500GT, 4Gigs Ram on a Gigabyte GS m56s-s3 mobo and a dreadful 2 wire gateway router, I get Internet connectivity and on a reboot nothing, a couple of more resets of the router and reboots and I am away again. This appears to be from the above notes a comaptibility problem inherent in Win 7

dont take this too hard, but. You became a sheep of MS, went out and now the OS is going to legally cost the the price of the OS + any additional hardware needed to make the OS work. Thats not how the "ecosystem" (ha i made a funny) is supposed to work. Thats not making the OS any better, by bypassing a problem. Only to partial remedy the situation. Since i'm a betting man, i'll bet you'll be back around in this subforum for similar reason, or another reguarding connection. For your sake and the rest of us, i hope your not. That would be a bit of good news possibly. But doesnt solve the overall problem i'm afraid.

Actually, this is part of the price you pay for using beta software. I would expect (hope) that these and other bugs will be worked out by the time Windows goes RTM.

I really wished that 7100 had no bugs with the connection, but it's not. Obviously, there are major problem to be solve.

I was just posting my solution for others to refer to.

I hope that I don't come back to this thread. It will mean that my solution works and other can try, instead of downgrading or waiting for the RTM or patch.

Win 7 has been very stable other than the connection drops.
