Re: Vista loses internet connection


I have the same problem in Vista Ultimate. Power Mgt has always been off
for the NIC. I have a Linksys WRT54G coming off the cable modem. The
Vista computer having the problem is wired into the hub with CAT5.
Another computer sharing the WRT54G wirelessly never has a problem (it
is running Fedora Linux 6, BTW :wink.

Typically, I'm listening to internet radio or watching a Youtube video
when I lose the internet. Rebooting does fix it, but I've learned that
rebooting the router fixes it too - and quicker. It's not a router
problem, since the Linux system never loses the Internet. Just
unplugging / replugging the CAT5 cable from the router doesn't fix it.

I don't know if this is the same or different problem as the original
post, but it seems that we could pick up a commonality here somehow.

I've applied all MS patches to Vista, to no avail.

Any ideas?

Jim

Re: Vista loses internet connection


As per above... this worked for me. Open your NIC and click on
Properties, Configure, Power Management, Remove any checkmarks that are
on the NIC that allows your computer to shut down the NIC.

This did fix my issue that I had loosing connection.

Power management has always been off for my NIC. I did turn off IPV6
and we'll see if that helps.

Re: Vista loses internet connection


This is what I had to make on my Vista to stop the Dropping Connection
issue:
From: Control Panel, click on Network and Sharing Center, click on View
Status, Click on Properties, Click on Configure, Click on Power
Management, from here there should be No Checkmarks.

You also may want to check your Power Saving Features:
From: Control Panel, click on Power Options and set these options to
Never.

Other then that I can't see what else the problem could be.

Let me know if any of this made a difference.

Re: Vista loses internet connection


This is what I found on the Microsoft site from the link posted above:

WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, use one of the following methods:

Run the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool. The Internet
Connectivity Evaluation Tool checks your Internet router to see whether
it supports certain technologies. The tool is intended to be run from a
home network behind a home Internet (NAT) router. Running this tool
from behind a corporate firewall or on operating systems other than
those specified in the "Applies to" section will not produce accurate
results. This tool requires administrator credentials to run. For more
information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/usi...d/default.mspx
(http://www.microsoft.com/windows/usi...d/default.mspx)

Manually determine whether Windows Scaling is being handled
incorrectly by the firewall device. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click
Command Prompt.
2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press
ENTER:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
This command disables the Receive Window Auto-Tuning feature.
3. Try to make a non-HTTP network connection.

Note If the connectivity problem is resolved, contact the manufacturer
of the firewall device for steps to correct the issue.
4. At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press
ENTER:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
This command enables Receive Window Auto-Tuning again so that you can
take advantage of the increase in network throughput performance that
this option provides

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem with a similar set up.

I have a Linksys ADSL router and coming off it I have...

1 Vista Ultimate x64 Machine
1 Server 2003 Machine
2 XP Pro machines
1 Kubuntu 7.10 machine

All are patched and there is no power management enabled on the NIC's.

Only the Vista machine is losing internet connectivity. Rebooting the
machine solves it, rebooting the router does not.

It's a real pain, but it doesn't happen to me as often as some people I
am reading about.
