    recently installed windows 7 and noticed this problem. I was on the internet and a page took a little longer to load so i clicked again and it worked. After a while I went on youtube and saw that the video stopped loading a 1/4 of the way in. I was also playing Aion and it would disconnect me from the server. It's like the internet connection works for 30 secs drops for 5 and then starts up again. It has been doing this for a while, i never had this problem on vista, i thought it might have been my router so i replaced the router. Everyone else is running vista/xp at my house and they can stream videos and play games just fine.

    Im running a Dell XPS M1530 laptop with an Intel Wifi Link 4965AGN

    Driver Provider: Intel
    Driver Date: 9/15/2009
    Driver Version 13.0.0.107

    I have a feeling its the driver but i cant find a newer one.

    I have the same problem, do you also see a limited connectivity in the tray?

    I have a similar problem but I never see a failure of the network connection itself. MSN and Ventrilo continue to run, I just lose the http portion of my connection. It takes a minute or so for the internet to start working again.

    Exactly like mine, and it does whether I do it by cable or wireless...

    Did you guys upgrade a Vista install to 7?

    I'm starting to wonder if it's the upgrade. I've heard a lot of clean installs are OK.

    Mine was a clean install.
    But, I may have found a fix for it. I changed my network adapter settings and locked it down to 100/full and my performance has increased significantly. It's been several hours and I haven't had any issues with web pages not opening.

    Okay. Good to know. I'll enable my adapter for 100MB Full Duplex. it was set to auto negotiate. I also updated my Norton internet security 2009 (was installed on Vista) to 2010. It may make a difference.

    Well, I have had a couple of interruptions so it isn't the entire solution, but it did make a large difference. I'll let you know if I find anything else that works

    I think I've managed to overcome the problem. Simply installed new firmware on my Netgear router. Internet still seems a bit slow, but at least it works
