must restart winXP to access internet
Posted: 11-18-2003, 07:45 AM
On my laptop, if I close the lid, it goes to "hibernate". Then if I pick it
back up a little later, it "resumes" winXP, including all the programs I had
open, like IE6, open still to whatever website I was previously at. Great!,
I love this feature. However, here's the rub: It all works fine, and I can
resume my online activity, IF it hasn't been too long (about 1 hour or
less). However, if it is a longer period, everything looks the same, but I
cannot navigate to any other website. The internet connection is "dead"..
Closing and restarting IE6 does not cure this, the only thing that works is
restarting the computer. Dang if I can figger this out... I have a
broadband DSL connect with NeTDSL 8n00 modem, and Dlink 614 wireless
router...The wireless connect is showing as fine...ISP is MSN.
Thank you for any help you can give.
