    Is anyone else constantly losing your internet connection in Windows 7? I'm using the same driver as vista (dual boot) and vista maintains the connection but 7 loses it most of the time.

    Mine solid as a rock with ADSL using a Thompson 780WL voip router no drivers needed - your connection problems must lie elsewhere than with Windows 7 RC7100. IS your ISO kosher?
    What drivers are you refering to
    How do you connect to the internet
    What sort of internet connection do you have

    I would open a constant ping to your gateway (router if you go through a router or the modem itself if you don't), and see what the ping times are when you 'lose' your internet connection. It could be a DNS thing or it could be a driver thing, the modem could be going bad, it could be a number of things. You need to provide more concrete information.
