    Question internet disconnects, then reconnects (had this issue on vista)

    I was told how to fix this issue many months ago when i was using vista.

    basicly the problem is, that it will disconnect for the slight second and then the bubble with show up saying "local area connection is connected 1000mbps". its like its hibernating or something. it causes webpages to time out sometimes.

    How do i fix this? (computer specs in the sig). its XP Pro Service Pack 3.

    when i was using vista, somebody told me to go untick something. can't remember.

    Was it power management under the NIC in device manager?? Untick, the 1st option? I think this happens in Win7, when this goes to sleep. When I wake it up, it disconnects me from IRC

    I looked in device manager. i unticked "turn this device off when no in use to save power".

    I can't believe i forgot something that simple. It's weird, we get all technical with things like this and forget to check the little simple things.

    Silly me. sorry for wasting your time. i'll let you know how i get on.
