I had some internet problems before after I started using Windows 7, but thought I had it fixed by uninstalling AVG Free and doing a dns flush. But just now twice in a row my internet connection failed again. Some facts: -Removing the internet cable in my PC and putting it back in fixes it. -Disabling and re enabling the Realtek Driver fixes it. -Windows 7 troubleshoot finds nothing, but Windows Live Messenger says my default gateway is offline. -I am using a router; a Linksys WRT54G2 -The one other PC in the home network is not affected. -I can not even access my router through my browser. -I don't see anything wrong when I use ipconfig in cmd.exe (could be wrong) -Screaming and crying does not fix it. -I have used the search on the Windows 7 forums and read all threads. -Network map feature has never worked even when I have internet. Lastly I know not much about networking; I enjoy tinkering a bit with my PC but networking is to dull and unfathomable. Edit -I have an Asus motherboard, so no Nvidia Nforce. -Powersave for the Realtek driver is turned off.
