Windows 7 internet adapter bug

ok, im having a weird problem with win 7 everytime i start up. As soon as the desktop loads the icon for the 'network' says im not connected to the internet when i absolutely know i am. The only way i can fix this is by going into the adapter settings, disabling the 'local area connection' and enabling it after a few seconds.

this only started a few days ago and i have a dual boot of win xp and it never happens to it. Does anyone know how i can fix this? Its getting annoying to disable and then re-enable my internet connection EVERY time i start up.

    Make sure your network adapter driver (in Win 7) is up to date. Don't just rely on Windows Update to manage for you. Determine what network adapter you have, then go to the vendor (Marvell, Realtek, Intel, etc) and download and install the most current version available. Should clear up your problem. Good luck!
