      Router and Hibernation Mode

      Hi All,

      Has anybody had this problem with Windows XP, Hibernation and the Sky Router.

      I often use the hibernation mode on my PC and whenever I kick it back to life, I can never connect to the Web or Email (Outlook Express). It appears that going into and out of hibernation affects the router in some way.

      To clear the problem, I need to re-boot and then all's well. Sort of makes the hibernation mode redundant in a way!

      Any ideas how I can overcome this? I haven't tried Standby instead of Hibernation but would guess the same would happen

      Cheers All

      You could try this, go to the Device Manager expand the Network Adapters Section, right click your adapter and select Properties. On the Power Management tab, untick 'Allow the computer to turn of this device to save power'.

      If you are using a USB wireless adapter, also make sure that, the root hub it uses has the same box unticked in the power management tab. In fact if you are not using a laptop, do this with all the root hubs, as it is a setting that can cause lots of problems with USB devices. A mains powered desktop does not need to save this minuscule amount of power.

      Re: Router and Hibernation Mode

      Hi All,

      Well, I think I've fixed it and will post it here in case it can be of use to anyone in the future.

      The problem appears to stem from my firewall - Zone Alarm and there's two things to try...

      Reduce the security setting of ZoneAlarm's Internet Zone from HIGH to MEDIUM.

      If you put the setting back to High then tick the box to tell ZoneAlarm to "...allow outgoing DNS/DHCP in Internet zone on High setting."

      Have hibernated (!) several times since and each time I can connect to the web and email.

      Anyway, hope this helps

      Best Regards

      Dumfy
