View Full Version : Lost internets on all my pc's after win7 resumed from sleep?
WTH! I finally find out why my win7 pc was waking up immediately after going to sleep (made sure network card and usb roots were all set to "not wake on lan")... was sleeping soundly after that for a day. The on wake I have network between pc's but no internet. So I say, no problem I'll fire up the lappy and search for a solution but lappy has none either, same with my other desktop?? I checked router everything looks fine, even reset it. Win7 says something about there being no DNS.
set the DNS manually.
i use OpenDNS. www.opendns.org
Reset cable modem worked. Tried to sleep again and no internet again. Huh? Guess I'll just shut down from now on.

You lost the internets? You better find it/them. A lot of people are counting on ya.

You need to disable low power state for your network adapter. Check out the hardware properties for your network adapter, there is a checkbox on a tab in there. I had the same gripe with Win7 initially but that fixed it right up!
