Just installed windows 7 pro, everythings fine but im haveing an issue with my ADSL2+ connection - where it drops out (doesnt actually disconnect, but stops sending / receiving packets) every few hours, causing anything im downloading or any games i might be playing to timeout and disconnect.In the network and sharing center it show as

My Computer---------Unidentified Network------X-----Internet

ive tried Detecing problems, and it just shows as unable to resolve issue, please read the troubleshooting guides (which I have)

Anyone else have any ideas why the connection might be doing this ?
