    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 ?

    You could try this.
    Open the device manager.
    Open Network Adapters.
    Right click your adapter and select properties.
    Click the Power management tab
    You will possibly find the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

    1. Tick the bottom square "Allow the device to wake the computer". This option will grey out with
    2. Untick the top square.
    Out of the windows.
