Losing Internet connection in Win7

#1
Hello, I am running Win7 RC1 as of a couple of months and lately have had the Internet connection go down in mid-session for no apparent reason, no obvious 'trigger' action on my part.
Kind of a drag, as it is not enough to restart Firefox, but a reboot is required. It's not a wireless connection.


Any ideas anyone?


Thank you.

Thank you.
Iv'e had some disconnects while playing games such as WOW and there has been no apparent cause I can find :confused:

I have however gone into the properties of my network adapter via device manager and right clicked properties to turn off the option for windows to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and haven't had any more random disconnects as yet :cool:
