      Red face No connection after hibernation

      I've noticed that whenever my computer wakes up [Windows XP] from hibernation, it never gets BB connection.

      Usually after restarting the computer often gets the connection back.

      I tried with both dynamic & static IP but same result.

      Is there any way out to get connection work even after hibernation?

      You could try this - go to the Device Manager, expand the Network Adapters section, select your adapter and open it's Properties. Click the Power tab and uncheck the 'Allow the PC to turn off this device'. The wording may not be exact as I am not running XP at the moment, but I think you will get the idea.

      I know it's more of a work-around than a fix, bit have you tried right clicking the tray icon and selecting 'Repair connection'?

      Yes, that doesn't help either!

      Re: No connection after hibernation

      I also tried ipconfig/release & renew, adding DNS IP in the firewall etc.

      Another strange thing is that when I don't get any connection, if I search IP addresses of websites, I seem to open the webpages!

      After I restart my computer, I usually get back the connection.

      These are probably opening from your cache, if you try to refresh them, you will get a 'page not found' error.

      I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but the adapter 'going to sleep' is the only reason I can see for it loosing the connection. It gets woke up when you restart. When you are disconnected what happens when you right click the adapter icon in the Network connections? Does it show as Disabled? If so will it connect when you click Enable?
