Question about Intel Ethernet 10/100 Network Adapter
Hello! We just purchased a Dell Inspiron 530S with Windows Vista Home Premium. Initial hook-up and operation with no problems. Internet connection via Verizon DSL using modem and Netgear wireless router WGR614 with LAN cable to PC, other notebook connected wireless.
When the PC goes to "sleep" mode, the router "turns off" and the wireless connection with other notebooks are lost, as well. Turning the PC on from "sleep" mode, the router connection is not recovered unless the PC do a complete restart OR we unplug then plug the LAN cable to the adapter then do a network diagnostic repair process. We went to device manager to configure the ethernet adapter not to turn off in sleep mode but the problem still exists. We even tried connecting the DSL modem directly to PC via LAN and "sleep" mode also disconnects internet connection when turned back on from "sleep". We already called Dell Support but cannot provide guided solution. Also called Netgear and they claim it is not router problem but (maybe) ethernet adapter settings issue. Please help.
firstname.lastname@example.org The ethernet connection to my Dell Dimensionsion E520 with Vista and an Intel 82562v 10/100 Mbps netwoek card is only running at 10 Mbps whereas everything else in my wired home network is running at 100 Mbps, including a computer that is 5 years older. It's the card or Vista or the combination, as the cable is fine.
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.

Similar problem with XP Pro SP2, Intel 82562V-2 10/100 on Dell Vostro, Belkin G router. Windows will often say network cable is disconnected. I haven't isolated the problem to power management, but I wouldn't be surprised after seeing your post. Tried different cables, ports, and no other network devices have the problem. I just tried tuning off "reduce link speed during standby" in the network driver options maybe that will fix it. Before here are the things I would have to do to get it to work: unplug cable, wait (for several seconds), plug it back in, retry, retry, or restart the computer. When it isn't working there are no ethernet LED's on, if the lights come on when I replug the cable in then it works, but this does not always happen.
