    I've had a problem with the firewall cutting off internet connection for a while now - usually when a new rule is about to be created, but sometimes even when one's not. Sometimes, changing the firewall modes/turning-on-off/etc. worked, sometimes not.

    First noticed it on Vista-32 Ultimate using the beta, and now on Windows 7 64-bit using the RC.

    What's odd about it is, it only occurs when I'm using an ethernet cable. When I switch to wireless, internet never cuts off.

    Current specs of laptop below:
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit b7000
    Macbook Pro
    Intel C2D T7700 2.4GHz
    4GB RAM
    Atheros AR5008X Wireless Adapter
    Marvell Yukon 88E8058 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

    I think it is hard to impossible to reproduce such thing with BETA OS , BETA security product and unknown status of network drivers (are they really compatiable with 7 ?)

    I am also using a cable, and I am having the same problem with ESS 4 RC1, so I switched to EAV 4 RC1...

    Windows XP SP3

    I'm Running windows 7 ultimate (build 7000 32bits) and no trouble at all (connected via a TP-Link wireless router), and whether it is a wired connection (lan, on mi PC using an on board nvidia lan) or wireless (on my Laptop, using atheros) I can surf the web nice and fluid.

    Perhaps there is a conflict with your drivers (router or network adapter's), win7 and ESS and they just don't get along...
