Found new weird network issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Cable provider is doing upgrades to my area, my cable modem never looses sync. I am running Win 7 x64 RC 7100 on 2 different (1 AMD, 1 Intel) PCs connected to wired a router. If my connection to the internet fails I can't connect to my wired router or my network from either machine. I have to close open apps on one of the PCs and then open Network & Sharing center, then click on the warning between the PC and the network icon. After the attempt to connect to the internet fails I can connect to router and my network even though I still have no internet connectivity. This is just bizarre and it happens to both PCs neither can connect to the router or each other until I do this "chicken ritual" on a machine. The NIC connections are Client for MS networks and TCP/IP4. Any ideas? Why does network connectivity lock up?

  • What sort of applications are you running? Is there a common activity you are doing when this usually happens? Do you have drivers for your NIC cards directly from the manufacturer's site?

  • Tried both the Nvida driver and the Microsoft one that came with Win 7. Using browser and winamp.
