Windows 7 RC build 7100 LAN Driver Problem

Hey guys, I just bought a new PC and installed Win 7 RC build 7100 on it. Now the thing is, its already started giving me problems. I installed a LAN Driver (Realtek 8111/8168 LAN driver for gigabit) which came with my motherboard (Gigabyte Ep45 DS3R)..
It installed perfectly and my internet was soon up and running but i was a little happy too soon. I can now see that Win 7 sometimes stops recognizing my driver, disconnects me from the net and when i try to troubleshoot, it tells me to check the wires of my modem. I check them and replug them. Restart my modem. Even restart my PC. Nothing Works. Then I reinstall my driver, and voila! internets working again. But thats temporary. Soon, it again disconnects me and stops recognizing my driver. Now, I cant keep doing this drill so plz help me with this...

  2. Try different drivers. Sometimes vista drivers will work in win7.
