There are many causes of this, but the most common can be solved by going to the CMOS (BIOS) of your computer and disable the power saving on the ethernet, PCI or wathever where you modem is connected.

Wireless disconnect in sleep mode?


I think that is normal to conserve energy. There are times when it will take the network connections down to conserve energy.

If it is a problem you can always increase the time on the sleep mode or set it to NEVER.

Monitor goes blank coming out of power save mode


I found this on the Internet...

"Press the "Input" button on your LCD monitor's front panel repeatedly at three- or four-second intervals until your monitor wakes up. If your monitor is set to an incorrect input mode, it won't receive a video signal. After you reset the monitor to the proper input mode, it will receive the signal and wake up automatically."

Internet and modem light won't light up


Try disconnecting the power from the cable modem - wait about 10 seconds then reconnect the power. It may take a few minutes to reconnect depending on your provider but sometimes cable modems get "frozen" and need to be power cycled.

If you are using a motorola surfboard modem make sure that you do not press the button on the top of the modem whn you are reconnecting the power cord because it is designed to turn off the internet connection for security purposes.

Added a new video card, now my monitor stays in sleep mode


If the computer originally had integrated video, have you tried reconnecting the monitor to that output? Most system boards will automatically detect when you install a separate video card, but on some you need to disable the built-in video in the BIOS before the new card will work. Also, have you considered the chance you just got a lemon of a new card? It happens sometimes (it's happened to me!).

Motorola SB5101 Modem disconnects


* If you can connect after disconnecting power and reconnecting, it means there is formation of static charge on modem

* Check whether there is any cordless phone or any other satellite devices next to the modem. If so, move the modem 10 feet away.

* If your modem is placed on carpet, please place it on wooden desk

If this doesnt work, please dont rate me down, if it works, please rate me as fixya!!! lol...

Have a nice day!!!

Losing ip address after skeep mode windows vista


I have a dlink product and the first thing I noticed about it was it was extremely unpredictable until I finally got it to a location where there was plenty of free moving air, and it's quiescent operating temperature could come down about ten or so degrees F. But it was not a problem that timed out with anything the PC was doing. An easy way to find out may be next time it happens, find a way to cool the innerds, (I sucked cool air through it and it would just start working again) If you blow, it may get moisture and warmer air in it. Who knows. What do you have to lose... unless a neighbor sees this activity thru a window!!!
