Re: Vista 64bit SP2 Now No Internet on Wake Up

Thank you Jack... it's not "wireless"... this is hard-wired to the NIC port on my EVGA 680i Motherboard... and if you mean set "Allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" setting on the NIC adapter... been there, done that... no joy... i reinstalled the NIC drivers... that didn't help... i did a system restore... that didn't help... i have NOT reversed the installation of SP2, but I suppose that's the next step... not something I really want to do... any other ideas ???

My internet connection is gone every time I wake the machine from sleep with the following error in the event log... worked fine in SP1... no hardware/software changes... no driver updates for the network adapter are available... it's on a netgear router which I presume is the device sending the "DHCPNACK message"

Ideas anyone ??????????????
