windows 7

first let me say i only installed windows 7 cuz it looked awesome, i wish i wouldn't have done that now. i only use my PC to game and i only play 1 game only. now since i installed windows 7 i could barely play the game. at first i thought it was compatibility between windows 7 and the game but it isn't that. for some weird reason after i installed windows 7 my connection is somehow screwed. for example i can play the game fine once i actually get into it. but when i try to log in to the actuall client of the game i get connection errors and while inthe lobby of the game i experience connection errors as well.

another example i can go onto some webpages and others i cant connect to. i can go on some main sites but i cant connect to their forums.

any idea whats going on?

system specs

windows 7 ultimate x86
4g of ram
geforce 8600gt
motherboard-asus m2n68-am

Sounds like you should update your Realtek network driver.
