[Solved] Local Area Connection/Modem/Network/Internet not working after Hibernate or Sleep in Windows 7
One of the common options used in Windows 7/Vista/XP is sleep and hibernate. Sleep is generally used to save power, while Hibernate is used to quickly save work and reboot promptly. Presently I’m using a landline internet connection and recently bought a new desktop with a new network card. Internet seemed to work fine while I shutdown the computer and restart it. But when I recover from Hibernate or sleep, the PC power indicator on my modem, would become disabled or dim. Then I manually have to disconnect, the power adapter to my modem or the LAN cable connecting my modem and my pc and re-connect it again. This was making me crazy whenever I do Hibernate or Sleep in Windows 7.
After searching for this problem on the web in Google, I found out an articles related to this problem of local area connection/modem/network/internet not working after hibernate or sleep in windows 7. The solution is simple.
Open your Device Manager (Control Panel —> All Control Panel Items —-> Device Manager) and find your Network Adapter currently using for your internet or network connection. Right-click the Network adapter and select the Properties.
A pop-up window with various panes open after clicking the above option.
Go To Power Management panel. Under this panel or pane, you’ve different options.
Now toggle the option “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” to see if your problem is resolved or not. Generally unchecking this option will solve your problem and you’ll be able to connect to your internet or LAN after Hibernate or Sleep. If this doesn’t solve the problem, then just enable it again.
If this doesn’t work try to disable the “Hybrid Sleep” in the power options.
If this doesn’t work either try to disable “Sleep” options to Never in your power options.
