Windows 7: Network Card disconnect on high usage

My computer was keep disconnecting from network, I think it happens when I am doing high network usage. After I remove the network cable and reconnect, it works for while.

System Event log has few of these,

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Client
Date: 4/19/2011 6:23:00 PM
Event ID: 1014
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Name resolution for the name timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

I found this FORUM POST with few solutions.  The one worked for me is to disable Receive Side Scaling in network card advanced properties.  I hope this helps if anyone suffers from this nagging issue.
