New Network problems after power save mode on Windows XP
I recently installed a wireless router. It works fine most of the time. My laptop connects wireless and my desktop is plugged in. However, I find that after my desktop goes into power save mode and then comes back up, I can't access the internet. Everything I try comes up with server not found. I know the router is connected because my laptop on the wireless connection is fine. I can also access the router itself from my Windows box (so I have network conectivity to the router). It either clears up all by itself after some time or a reboot of Windows solves the issue. Any ideas what is causing the problem? Any suggestions?
New have you used 'ipconfig -all' to check the IP addresses?
Maybe somehow it's losing them. If it is, "ipconfig renew" should get it an address.

New Re: have you used 'ipconfig -all' to check the IP addresses?
Yes the IP addresses are still there. I tried ipconfig /release and then renew didn't help
New What type of wireless card?
Some cards had a problem losing state when the machine hibernates. There is nothing to warn the driver that the machine is going away. Your card disassociates but the driver hasn't been notified. The internal state gets screwed up and it gets messy. Can you turn the card off and back on? That should reload the driver and bring up the card in a proper state. You may be able to get a newer driver that will fix the problem as well, depending on which card you are using.
New Re: What type of wireless card?
I am not having problem with the wireless connection. My desktop is plugged in to the router. The wirelss access is from my laptop.

The problem is that my desktop system when going into power save mode and the returning seems to lose DNS. I can connect to the router using it's internal IP address but I can't connect to anything outside on the net.
New Ok. You don't think it's the wireless card and or driver
but rebooting the machine fixes it. Without touching the router. It still sounds like a state problem to me. Just for giggles, try stopping and restarting the card. See if that fixes the problem. If it's a cardbus or pcmcia, just pull the card and reinsert it.
New Turn off power saving on the desktop? Turn off the monitor.

New Re: Turn off power saving on the desktop? Turn off the moni
That is definately an interim solution but I would really like to get to the root of the problem.
New You run Windows :-P
