Connection lost when resuming from standby
Posted on 2004-09-01
I'm using Win XP Pro on my HP portable, with a PCMCIA NIC (w/latest driver) and a DSL modem.
Often, when I resume from standby mode, I've lost my connection and can't get it back. I've tried recycling the modem (turning it off for a while, then back on), and removing and reinserting the NIC. No luck.
When this happens, netstat shows local connections only. (If I run my browser, it's shown connecting only to 127.* addresses.) To reconnect, I must reboot Windows. This pretty well makes standby mode useless.
Have any idea what I can try? Thanks!
