Have you had a look on the firewall website for a suitable firewall system that compliments windows 7? I had to download a new one myself when I went from Windows XP to Windows Vista.
Sometimes changing systems means you should also change your firewall, then you'll have the most up-to-date software going. Plus it won't slow your computer down like it doesn't sometimes.
Hope I helped
IF you are using a Wireless Router and having intermittent Connection then change the Wireless channel of your Router to 9 and also check the firmware version of the router, it should always run on the Latest version.
Where is the router located? There maybe devices that run the same frequency as the router that may interfere the wireless connection (e.g. microwave oven, cordless phone). It may help if you place the router in the middle of all your wireless computers, change the channel of your router (change it to channel 1 or 11), or securing your wireless network by changing your SSID (do not use default wireless network name as others maybe using the same) or use WPA or WPA2 to make sure that nobody uses your wireless network.
This is a firmware issue with the newer Linksys routers, and most people are having the same issue. Don't expect a stable firmware release from the manufacturer any time soon.
Instead, if you want to fix the problem properly, head on over to www.dd-wrt.com and install their firmware. I did this in a last ditch effort before throwing out my router, and now the router hasn't acted up for more than 10 days.
Be sure to follow the instructions when flashing firmware, several of the steps are critical to not "bricking" your router. As usual, make sure you are on a WIRED connection, as flashing from a wireless connection is guaranteed to kill your router. When flashing dd-wrt's firmware, you must also first flash a "mini" or "micro" version before flashing the full version.
Its not dropping you because of the spectrums, it works on line of sight. If you are in a basement and your router is upstairs it has to go thru a floor and the strength is weakened. Go into your router and increase the signal strength. But you have to mod your firmware.
