    Vista loses internet connection

    Well I know the restart button on Vista real well. About 20 to 30 mins is
    what I get for the internet. After that no mail, no IE , no firefox.

    MS what a piece of sh__. I now get to reboot about 20 times a day. Just
    like win 95 during a development cycle.

    Besides all the other problems this is the WORST implementation of just
    about anything.

    MS you should be ASHAMED.

    Give some more info, we might be able to help. I have not had a crash
    since it came out. I think Vista is quite good.

    Please don't think I am being smart but this is the situation.

    Use internet for a while or not. After about 20 to 30 mins go on to
    internet. IE will not serve pages, mail will not recieve mail (also
    FireFox).

    I have tried to release/renew the IP address to no avail.

    Time to reboot about every 20 to 30 minutes.

    Re: Vista loses internet connection


    I'm new to this forum but wanted to post about this- I am having the
    same problem with Vista as well- frequently loses internet connection.
    I have a dell laptop and have wi-fi internet connection. It seems to
    lose connection after several minutes of idle time. Also regularly
    happens after the computer is in sleep or hibernate mode.

    I'm very unhappy with Vista about this (also unhappy that many
    applications are unsupported on Vista but that's another story.)

    Have you checked power management settings for the NIC in device manager to
    not "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"? Application
    compatibility, as is hardware driver compatibility, is the responsibility of
    the software/hardware vendor.

    Re: Vista loses internet connection

    For my internet dropping it just happens. Everything is fine and then ....
    time to reboot. I use the restart button about as much as any thing else on
    this Ultimate system.

    Re: Vista loses internet connection

    i had the work offline thing to but then it stopped. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS
    CERTAIN WEB SITES THE CONNECTION WONT GO THROUGH AND THEN I CAN STOP THE
    ATTEMPT AND TRY ANOTHER WEBSITE (LIKE THIS ONE) AND IT GOES RIGHT THROUGH.
    VISTA SUCKS I HAVE A BRAND NEW 3000.00 CPU WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST AND I
    HAVE TO USE MY OLDER DESK TOP TO DO MOST THINGS BECAUSE IT IS RUNNING THE
    GREAT XP. VISTA IS A JOKE.
