Internet dropping, need reboot to fix.

Hi, I'm a 16 yr old boy from PH and I've upgraded my Dell Inspiron 1525 from Vista 32bit to Windows 7 rc1 64bit. I've installed all old Dell drivers from a guide I've read. Now, I'm having problems...

I get disconnected from the internet, it says that it cannot connect to the local network. It happens 30+ mins while using the laptop. All I do now is reboot the computer. It's been bugging me lately, need help. Thanks.

Are you using firefox as your browser? Try using only IE8 and see if the problem goes away.
