I just replace an old windows xp with a new windows 7 home premium, that I am running on a Windows workgroup network.   This is the only windows 7 computer on the network, all others are xp pro.   No domain involved, just work group .       While it maintains all drive mappings, and  network printing functions it  drops internet intermittently ,  which is very annoying.     I tried changing Ethernet  cable as well as  turning off  IPV6 and even hard set IP address and DNS Settings just to make sure nothing crazy from router,  all other computers maintain Internet connection just fine , just the new Dell..    I  uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the Driver for the NIC as well.    Any suggestions

Do you have any spare NIC cards you can test in an available PCI/USB port?

I ran into a very similar issue a few months back regarding a Windows 7 Home Premium workstation on a primarily XP professional networked environment.

Unfortunately I never resolved the issue under the circumstances you're hoping to accomplish. We ended up upgrading to Windows 7 Professional and no longer had the networking issues...

7 Home Premium just isn't made to run office related networking tasks
