I just upgrading from XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro (not beta, actual release) and have run all updates, even driver updates for my network card - but every couple of minutes my internet seems to reset, disconnecting me from IRC, FTP, etc. and then comes back pretty instantly. I looked up some solutions and ended up disabling power saving turn-off features that were automatically enabled on my network adapters (through Device Manager) but it still happens. Could anyone offer some suggestions? The little task bar indicator never shows that the internet is disconnected... If it helps at all, I am using ESET Smart Security 4 64bit and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
