Windows 7 loses network connection
Posted on 2011-10-23
My HP Pavillion p6230y (64-bit) with Windows/7 Home Premium, loses its internet connection periodically. Boot it in Safe Mode with networking and the connection works. I have a Linksys 54GS router and two other PCs on the wired network (not using wireless). I can always see the the PCs on the LAN but I cannot get an internet connection. If I reboot, still no connection. If I shut down the modem, router and switch, I can recover but only for an hour or two (likely that standby is when the PC loses the connection. I saw a similar problem posted with about 40 replies and a final resolution of remove McAfee. I don't have McAfee.
