I've about had it with this thing. It's been happening on and off over the past 2 years since building this computer. Sometimes I can go months without it happening and sometimes it happens multiple times in one day. Doesn't matter what ISP or router I use.
What usually happens is when playing a game online the connection drops within the game. So I exit to windows and the little network icon has a yellow exclamation point. After running the W7 trouble shooter it always comes back with something about the gateway and resets the network adapter and all is well. I'm just tired of it happening in the middle of a game.
If it matters it seems to happen the most while playing World of Tanks. It never happens on any other computer in the house. Please help before I go completely bald from stressing about this.
