My internet connection drops every +- minute

Hi there!
I've got this issue since yesterday. I was playing some games online and suddenly the internet connection dropped. Now the connection keeps dropping every minute (sometimes less, sometimes more).

Here is what I tried:
- System restore to date, when everything was ok
- Driver reinstall
- Turning off antivirus
- Cleaning registy
- Defragmentation
- Using Vista Anti-Lag
- Using WLAN Optimizer
- Repairing everything I can with System Mechanic 9.5

Nothing helped me.

My notebook (XP) is connected to the same network, but having no problems at all.
I run win 7 on my PC.

I'm using WiFi..

Here's link, where I was pinging Google:

Thanks for any advices, except reinstalling Win :/

Unchecking IPv6 in the properties of your network adapter and also try
using public DNS servers, in the properties of IPv4 plug in preferred and alternate
See if that makes any difference at all.
Also right click taskbar and choose start task manager
check the box at the bottom that says show processes for all users
look to see if you have mdnsresponder running if so you may have some version of the bonjour service running which might be causing your issues, if so you may want to take a look at this article
How To Uninstall or Remove Bonjour mDNSResponder.exe

Hi Trouble!

Thanks a lot! Your first advice worked (Unchecking IPv6) and everything seems good.

Thank you once again ;)

Good to know. Thanks for posting back with the update.

Oh my god,
today, in the morning was everything still ok, but an hour ago - same problem..

1 week with no problems and now it's back, I tried the rest of your advices, but it keeps dropping..

First, double check IPv6 and see if something somehow re-enabled it.
Second, what's different about your network now, that wasn't true previously?
Did you introduce a new node? PS3, printer, NAS, visiting friend with a laptop?
When you run the network trouble shooter, what does it say about the network?
