Just had BT Brodband installed, replacing Tesco DialUp. Now, when I switch the computer on from Standy I cannot make the internet connection. ( I can make the broadband connection when switching the computer on from being switched off completely. Computer has XP.
Go into your control panel, select Network and Internet connections > Network Connections. Now, right click on the icon for your ethernet adaptor and click on Properties. Click on the Configure button at the top and select the Power Management tab. If the box with the description "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" has a tick in it, remove the tick and click on the O.K. button at the bottom.
