    I have xp in bootcamp, and when I play my online game, the internet quits about every 10 minutes. It's very consistant and also very annoying. I can disconnect and reconnect to make it last for another 10 minutes. Please help!
    I have the early '08 macbook pro. Please help!


    Oops, I just realized this should be in the windows on the mac section. I put it over there, but I don't know how to delete this one.

    Woohoo! I got it working, I found out I had to do this:
    1. Open your browser and clean all cache and temp files.
    2. Go to Start->Run. Type "prefetch" and press enter. It will open a folder. Delete all files within it.
    3. Go to Start->Run. Type "%temp%" and press enter. It will open a folder. Delete all files within it.


    Now it works perfectly. WOOOOOOOOOOO!

    This works!

    Just posting to thank Yarjarrar a TON, because there aren't many other solutions out there and this was a huge problem, and now it's gone! So yeah, this solution does work, and I hope anyone else who has this problem sees this.

    Huzzah!
