I am using Windows 7 on my laptop. In my home i have both WLAN and LAN connectivity. Initially most of the time i connect to WLAN, but when i want to copy a folder or download some thing i switch to Wired LAN.
The problem is when ever i switch from WLAN to LAN..and switch off the Wireless, the internet takes some time to be active from LAN. and once its active, i can browse for like 5 mins until again it becomes inactive and this process repeats again and again.
During the whole above scenario, if i simulate XP on Vmware,i am able to browse easily(in brigde mode) while on Windows 7 there is no Internet Connectivity. One more thing is that P2P (torrents)works fine all the way even when browser internet is not working.
I want to know if there is any tool/service that can be restarted to over come the issue? i get two different IP's from DHCP for WLAN and LAN. I have to restart the laptop to overcome the issue :S
