Windows 7 keep loosing Internet connection when streaming video
Posted on 2010-09-11
Every time I stream a movie to my laptop, or PS3 my internet crashe on the Windows 7 Machine where I'm getting the videos from.
I have a Windows xp laptop and a MacBook that keep working on the Internet so the problem is not on the router.
Before the Machine was working fine when using Windows XP. I did a clean install of Windows 7 32bit and now this is happening after a few minutes streaming video.
To restore the Internet connection I just disable and re-enable the network adapter and start working again for a few minutes.
If I don't stream videos Internet doesn't drop at all.
I have unchecked the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
Some more info:
Network Adapter is: Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller (Before with Windows XP it said in device manager : Attansic L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Controller) but I assume is the same.
Any ideas on what to do?
I've google it and it seems that I'm not the only one with this problem but I haven't found any solution. I hope that in Expert Exchange at last I can find an expert :)
