View Full Version : Wireless network drops out when I lock Windows

Got a rather annoying problem - My wireless network drops out when I lock Windows. The strange part is, is that it has just started doing it.

And it's not just on one network, it does it at work and at home. I have turned off the tickbox allowing windows to sleep the device and any other power option I could find, but still no luck.

Any ideas?

Little more info would be good, laptop/desktop, what brand (especially if an Acer, they have stupid power 'saving' featues) and what OS.

Oops sorry. That would be kinda useful ;)

Its an Advent 4211 (Which is a rebadged MSI Wind, so 1.6GHZ Atom, 80gb HDD, 2gb of Ram etc) running XP SP3.
