Windows 7 Network issue

Postby guest » Fri Dec 25, 2009 8:52 pm

I've been having a rather interesting networking problem after switching to windows 7. I'll boot the computer and get normal network connection to my router and dsl modem, and this will continue to work for long periods of time. However if I leave the computer alone for several hours with no activity, it will stop making new internet connections. Any current connections will remain active, long downloads will still be going, other programs like IRC and Steam will still be connected, but if I try to run any new program that connects to the internet, like IE or Firefox, it fails to connect. and it doesn't do the trying to connect to website and have a long progress bar before giving an error. it's instantaneous in not connecting. I only see the progress bar flash for a second.

I would like to confirm if the computer enters Sleep/Hibernation mode when you leave the computer alone for several hours with no activity. This issue can be caused by power settings.



To troubleshoot this issue, please perform the following steps:



Change Power plan

=============

1. Click the Start Button, type "power options" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search box and press Enter.

2. Choose High Performance (click the arrow icon in the right to show this option) and click Change plan settings under High Performance.

3. Click Restore default settings for this plan and click Yea click Save changes.



If it does not work, try Clean Boot mode.



Please also update BIOS and network card driver to latest version.
