I've been reading around the net about this annoying problem of mine for days now. I've seen many people having the same problem as me but never found a suitable solution.

So i decided to post here, and a couple other forums.

The facts:

I have a Zyxel ADSL wireless modem,
I have 2 computers connected with LAN and 2 laptops connected via the Wireless.
My computer has W7 Ultimate (64-bit), Laptops have Vista, updated to the latest.
Well the 2nd computer connected via LAN had Win XP SP:3 for a long time. Had no networking/internet problems what so ever.
I installed W7 Home(32-bit) on it.

This is where all the fuss began.

The 2nd computer connected via LAN which has W7 Home, somehow, keeps disconnecting the "Internet", not the network but just the Internet. (I guess it's refreshing the connection)

When that computer is on but idle, there're no disconnects.
When that computer surfs on the net, there are some disconnects.
When that computer downloads any file, instant disconnect.

I'm going to try to connect with wireless with that computer as well, see if it works out.

I'm kinda stuck at the moment.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance.
