    Computer help please!

    I have broadband with virgin media. Currently not using a router and modem connected straight to desktop pc. However, I have a problem. Internet works fine until computer goes into standby mode - then it stops (even though it shows that its working in the network connections) - so I have to restart the computer and intenet and it works. Its a bit of a pain! Anyone have any suggestions please?

    have you checkeed the power management of your LAN/NIC card? May be it was set to be powered off when the PC goes to stand by

    worth to check IMO

    disable standby?

    internet wont work when the pc is in standby!

    Maybe your ISP has detected that you're no longer connected and taken back your IP address? Try opening up a command prompt and typing "IPCONFIG /RENEW" without the quotes.

    In XP
    Right click on the netwrok tray icon - Status - Properties - Configure - select Power Management tab

    In Vista:
    Start - Control Panel - Device Manager - Netwrok adapter - select the device, right click and choose Properties - choose Power Management tab

    try putting it to sleep rather than standby (unless they;re the same thing on xp!)

    Turn the modem off and on..instead of rebooting the PC.

    as a last resort

    create a bat file what resets the network connection and save to the desktop and just run it each time you come out of standby

    call it something like resetwork.bat

    and type the following into the file and save it

    netsh int ip reset
