I've got TalkTalk router which plugs directly into my laptop with a rj45 cable.Sometimes when I come up from hibernate, the laptop will not establish an internet connection. I have to do a warm boot.I tried "repair" and even going to CMD and typeing ipconfig /renew /refresh etc. Tried turning off/on my router, unplugging cable etc.Doesn't do anything.Is there anyway of re-establishing an internet connection without reboot?Thanks,,
Have a look in Device manager and see if there is a tick in the box for "allow computer to switch this off to save power" for the ethernet card / contoller.
thanks, I checked and it was on powersave so I turned it off.But, I still have the same issue.Any more ideas?
The simple solution = turn off hibernation Cheers HC
I figured it out: it was ZoneAlarm !!!I don't know why but when I did a warm reboot it usually worked but when I restored from hibernation it didn't work.I turned OFF ZoneAlarm and it worked no problem.Now I have set an allowable IP range and it works fine.But why ZoneAlarm has blocked it sometimes and other times not is a mystery.Anyway, thats the answer.
