Hi All

I've had Windows 7 for about 6 months, and have been getting an intermittent problem where my internet cuts out. The network icon shows a yellow exclamation mark and I have to right click on it and Troubleshoot Problems, which then resets/repairs the connection and everything's okay.

Here's some details from the troubleshooting report:

Network adapter Local Area Connection driver information:

I've found some posts on the net about this problem, and people have said it's a known issue with nvidia, but my network controller's Realtek.

Anyone have any experience of this?

Thanks in advance
Chris

Your motherboard may have an Nvidea chipset or there may be conflicts with an Nvidea graphics card. About all you can do is to make sure you have the latest drivers for both.
