Re: Vista SP1 Causes Continuous Network Reconnects



Unbinding IPv6 from the NIC is a hack. I use IPv6 frequently and this is not
a solution for me. I have had to go back ot a 100Mb/sec card for IPv6 and for
some applications this is unacceptable.

This needs to be FIXED!

do you have the latest firmware for the Netgear router?
have you unbound IPv6 from the NIC?
is power management for the NIC turned off in device manager so that
it is always on?

SP1 causes a cycle of connects and disconnects on my wired network
connection. Problem disappears when I uninstall SP1 but reappears when I
reapply SP1. My connection is through an Intel Pro/1000 CT chipset on an
ASUS P4C800-E motherboard going to a Netgear WGR614 v7 router. Problem
remains even if I uninstall my Avast antivirus software. Just using Vista's
native firewall. The network icon in the system tray cycles through a yellow
warning sign going on and off.

I've tried the repair connection option in Vista but it doesn't find any
problem. I uninstalled the driver for the card hoping a reinstall would
rebuild and fix the problem but it made no difference. I'm using Microsoft's
drivers for the NIC chipset. I power cycled the router but that made no
difference. But as I said, uninstalling sp1 restores a normal network
connection.

An ipconfig when the connection is good shows an IP in proper range for the
DHCP from my router. At the disconnect, yellow warning sign, it shows no IP.

I've attached entries from the system log that illustrates what happens in a
reconnect cycle. I deleted the XML event data for brevity but can add it to
this thread if it's necessary.

Thanks
