Hello everyone,

On a friend's computer, they have broadband with Comcast. It seems that once every few hours (maybe after every restart? Not sure really...) they can't connect to the internet. I've found that going into Network connections, and clicking "Create a New Connection" on the left-hand menu and going through setting up a broadband connection manually seems to fix it- for a while...

Any ideas why this would suddenly stop working? I'd like to find a permanant fix.

Any tips are greatly appreciated!

Try this:
Go to Control Panel/Network Connections,right click on it and select Properties.On the next box,on the General tab,look for "Connect using"and you will see a "Configure" button,click it and on the next box select the "Power Management" tab.Uncheck the box beside "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
Hope this works for you.
