Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Internet connection disconnects

If your ethernet card or wifi adapter disconnects when the computer goes into sleep mode, and the only way out is to restart the system, try this:
Open the Device Manager, under the Properties, Power Management tab for your ethernet card or wireless adapter, deselect the box that reads "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

If other devices are sketchy as to how long they'll stay active, try the same trick:
Open the Device Manager, open every USB Root Hub, and under the Properties, Power Management tab, deselect the box that reads "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Computer Will not start with my new pci device


Remove the card and install again making sure it goes all the way in..( and/or installing on another slot.. Make sure theres no hair or dust goes in the slot.. If problem persist, 1. You probably need to access bios n configure/enable the pci ports.. 2. The power supply is insufficient.

network adapter not installed or not present message


Hi,

Restart your computer in safe mode. Press F8 while rebooting. Once in safe mode, go to Start - control Panel - system. Right click on and remove the network card devices (you might see more of them there than you do in normal mode). Then restart the computer.

It should detect the new card and allow you to install the drivers for it. If it still doesn't detect the new NIC card, try powering off the machine. Open the case, and make sure the card is properly seated inside the computer case. Press down on it firmly. Then restart and see if it detects the card.

If it doesn't detect the card, the card might be bad. If you have another card, I'd suggest trying a different one, to see if it recognizes a card that you know is good.

Try these things and let me know how it goes. Thanks.

Intel 82562V-2 10/100 ethernet adapter does not turn back on from vista sleep mode


If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.

Intel 82562V-2 10/100 ethernet adapter does not turn back on from vista sleep mode


I have the same network card.
Never had this problem with Vista (32 bit) but recently switched to Win7 (64 bit) and had the same problem as you.
I solved by going under Control Panel->hardware->network card properties->power save and unchecking "Allow pc to switch off the device to save power"
