I have a windows 7 machine that about every 30 minutes or so will lose network connectivity to the internet. I have a monitor set up to ping www.google.com
every 5 minutes and this ping fails about twice an hour. The weird thing is that I have a centOS vmware guest on the same machine and that image experiences no networking outtages. Even during the periods where I can't ping google from the host, I can still access the internet from the guest.
I also have other physical machines on the network connected to the same router that have no issues. During the outtages, I can still ping the router from the affected machine. The firewall and anti virus are completely disabled on the host.
I'm totally stumped by this so any troubleshooting suggestions would be much appreciated.
