    When I launch browser I get a connection error (i.e., no connection) until/unless I unplug patch cable and then replug it. I have to perform this ritual once every time I boot up the system but will maintain connection throughout session. Installed new NIC (Linksys LNE100TX) when this started happening but it functions just like old NIC. Just started from one day to the next for no apparent reason. Driving me nuts!

    try going to device manager and find the network adapter and goto its properties then click on the power management tab and uncheck the option to allow the computer to turn it off to save power.

    There are "Link Wakeup (Off->On)" and "Link Wakeup (On->Off)" options and both have been set to "Disable." In addition, Flow Control, Magic Packet Wakeup, Pattern Match Wakeup, PME Enable and Priority Packet options have been set to "Disable." Situation unchanged after changing these options.
