    Hi - I hope this is in the right section.

    Windows XP Home - BT Broadband.
    When ever I restart my computor from 'standby' I cannot get immediate internet access.

    When the 'cannot connect' page comes up in Internet explorer 7 I simply click on 'diagnose problems' and the 'plutor fixes this problem. I can always then get on the net but it is starting to annoy me and never used to do this.

    Can someone help me please.

    I also have another desktop and 2 lap tops in the house on wireless but they are not affected .

    Thank you

    Simon

    Start, Run, devmgmt.msc

    Under the properties of your network adapter, on the Power Management tab, uncheck the power saving option.
