network gets hang when system left idle

  dudez 12:11 22 Jul 2006

If I'm leaving my system idle for more than half an hour or more ,the lan card stops receiving any bytes. Then i'have to shut it down for about ten mins.After that it starts functioning normally. I'v changed the patch cord & also changed the network point too.I'v also changed the LAN card also.please help me to sort it out

Go into Device Manager, open Network adapters, right click on your adapter, click Properties and Power Management.

Untick the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and see if this solves the problem.

Actually the LAN card is not getting disabled or switched off. Its status is shown as connected. Its sending bytes but not receiving.
