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.

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.

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.

HAVE TO USE MY OLDER DESK TOP TO DO MOST THINGS BECAUSE IT IS RUNNING THE
GREAT XP. VISTA IS A JOKE.

For one thing, the caps lock key is broken, at the least it makes it hard to
read and most people will just ignore a post like that. Second are you
asking a question? If so post it as a new thread, not as a reply to someone
else's thread.

Well- this losing internet connection also happens when it's in use- I
was actively using the machine when it suddenly dropped. Now, usually
it restarts if you wait a few minutes. I went to Device Mgr and found
a setting in Advanced tab: Minimum power management and disabled it but
no improvement.

Very annoying- I never had this problem until I got Vista. Any new
theories why this is happening?

I have the same problem. Sometimes, I still have the local connection
( I can reach other computers in my network but not the internet) I
have to click on the icon between local netowrk and internet and it
goes on again. Or if I leave the computer on all night, in the morming
I have lost all connections. I make a detect and repair and on again.
But it's a pain in the arse.

I was also having this problem... I have just Shut off the Power
management on my NIC. I'll let you know if it does not work.... but
I've got my money on it that this is gonna fix the problem. Thanks for
the help... Google brought me here. :o)

DOH... should'a thought of that! ;o)

Hello. I'm having the same problem.

At random times, normally after being connected to the internet for
about five or six hours, my connection suddenly drops. None of the
programs that connect to the internet (uTorrent, AIM, mIRC, etc.) stay
online and nothing besides restarting the whole computer fixes that.
Needless to say, I'm tired of it.

At first I thought it could be a problem with my internet connection.
But then I tried going online with another computer (running XP) on
this network and it wasn't having any problems, which leads me to
believe the problem is Vista. I tried turning off IPv6 and that really
didn't fix anything, I still experienced connection drops.

Is there anything else I can do? I see some people talking about NIC
and going into properties. Can someone tell me how to access that to
give it a shot?

Thank you.

This is what I had to make on my Vista to stop the Dropping Connection
issue:
From: Control Panel, click on Network and Sharing Center, click on View
Status, Click on Properties, Click on Configure, Click on Power
Management, from here there should be No Checkmarks.

You also may want to check your Power Saving Features:
From: Control Panel, click on Power Options and set these options to
Never.

Other then that I can't see what else the problem could be.

Let me know if any of this made a difference.
