A similar problem I had with the Release Candidate version of 7 was solved by rolling the ethernet driver back one version. The website listed a Win7 compatible driver, but when I had that installed it was not recognized; once I rolled it back, it worked fine.

(This problem has ceased in the current version of Win7 though, the newest drivers work fine.)
