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

Which connection device do you use to connect internet?

Start, Run, devmgmt.msc

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