Why does Windows 7 Keep Dropping My Nework?

Why does Windows 7 Keep Dropping My Nework?
On and Off, my network fails, I can repair and it works but says that the ADSL gateway was not contact able and that's what was fixed. Annoying when ur in the middle of something like a download or game online or chat on msn!

Only thing is the rest of my network is fine, and so was this PC on Vista yesturday before updating it.
I do have two Gigabit Lans onboard, but only one connected, tried disabling the one not in use, in case its trying to use that?
No Luck Yet and this is intermitent, MSN, Steam, Online Games ETC drop it out..
Perhaps I should try other network drivers too, or reinstalling the mobo manufacturers ones? (everything at the moment is as the upgrade made it, from 64bit Vista)
No Drivers have been reinstalled yet. (will be installing my GFX card drivers from Nvidia latest later)
Also I did have it setup with DHCP which was dropping out, now changed to manual settings and still drops out when it wants! :p
What is the FIX? PLEASE SOMEONE!!

Code:
Network Gear = 
LINKSYS AM-300 Annex A ADSL Modem, 
Surecom EP-808SX 8-port switch.
