Windows 7: Windows Loses Track of Network

Windows Loses Track of Network

At various times, but mostly after booting, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit loses track of the network, both the local net and Internet.

The light on the Win-7 port on the router is flashing rapidly and continuously and there is no connectivity.

The only way to recover the net is to disable and then re-enable the Local Area
Connection.

Is there a cure for this nonsense?

Usually it's the router in need of a firmware update or the network driver isn't the correct one. This is a very typical problem when one of those isn't correct.

I have the latest firmware in the router.

Where is the network driver? A Windows-7 driver?

Have you tried re-booting your router ? Also you might want to restore it back to it's factory setting and see if that helps.

Rebooted it quite often recently for other reasons. It's easier to deactivate then re-activate the Local Area Connection than resetting the modem every time.

It hasn't been a problem today. Perhaps it's gone away - fingers crossed.
