What could cause a network interface to intermittently drop?

I bought a new computer (ASUS CG5270) last week. It would randomly shut itself off, so I returned it and got a replacement. This one doesn't have that problem, but seems to be malfunctioning.

It turns out the problem is Vista was trying to help. In the settings for the network card, I found a checkbox for the setting "Allow Windows to turn off this device to save power." The setting was checked. Unchecking the setting seems to have made my problems go away; today I've used Youtube and iTunes radio stations with no problems.
