I have a problem relating to my network connection.
I am running a PC in Windows 7 (32-bit) connected to a "BE Box" (Thomson TG585 V7)) wireless router via ethernet. It all runs fine on initial boot up, but when I put the computer to SLEEP and restart using ps/2 supported power on in BIOS, the connection fails. It seems like the router is forgetting the IP configuration settings. During this time, all the WiFi devices that are also connected to the router work fine, just the ethernet connected PC that cannot connect to the web.
I have tried the following:
- Replaced the router (with the same model!)
- Replaced the ethernet cable and tried every one of the 4 ethernet ports
- Called my ISP (who believe it is a windows software issue) to manually program my TCP/IP settings via the router
- Manually configured my ISP's TCP/IP settings through windows itself
- Repaired Windows 7 via the DVD
- Rebooted and restarted all settings via my router page and saved them again.
None of this seems to fix my problem and I am getting really bored of having to follow the following steps to get it to work:
- Turn off power to router
- Reboot Windows
- Turn on router and wait once Windows has reloaded
