Resume standby drop...
Hey everyone, new to the forum and just got my Sky broadband sorted. Got the MAX package .
The connection is fine so far and its all going smoothly. My only gripe is when I hibernate or put my laptop in standby, when I resume I have a connection to the network but I dont get any web service or other services.
In other words, upon resuming from standby/hibernation, I can reconnect to the network fine, but when it comes to opening up a web browser it can't find a page. Doing a DNS lookup through the router software gives results but thats it.
Any help would be really appreciated.

I don't think you can get around this with hibernation as it cuts power to just about everything.
With standby you may be able to adjust the power saving feature of your wireless device. Go to Control Panel/system/hardware/device manager and select the wireless or network adapter. Right click it choose properties then power management. Untick "allow this device etc". You might need to reboot the laptop to make this effective.
You didn't say whether a wired or wireless connection. Chances are though that this won't work for wireless but may for wired.

Its a wired connection. I don't really understand why it does this though. I'm fine with the computer losing the connection when its in standby or hibernation, thats not the problem.
The problem is when I resume and it reconnects to the router, i have a connection but I don't get service i.e. web pages. But like I said, a DNS lookup in the router software works. If I restart my machine then I still have a connection when it comes back on but I also do get web service etc.
Basically the problem is that when I resume, I can't browse web until I restart but I do have a connection to the network.

I sometimes get this problem too, I find either refreshing or opening and closing my browser a few times does the trick.

I also disabled the windows service "Wireless Zero Configuration" service as that has reportedly got problems,
Makes for much quicker boot times

Hi Check your firewall settings, I had the same problem until I disabled ZoneAlarm and it now reconnects fine from standby or hibernate

So you had problems reconnecting to the network or getting services?
It reconnects to the network fine but it doesn't get any web service I will try some of those things out later.
Disable ZoneAlarm? Then what will I use as a firewall?
