Windows 7: Constant refresh of network

02 Dec 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Maybe try the power options for the network adaptor, make sure they dont turn it off to save power, there are more power saving options for most network adaptors in device manager that can also cause problems. The pictures below shows you were to check.

Windows 7 Ultimate X64

mmm hmm. I'm aware of the advanced power options. Had to shut off hard drive idle. Even more irritating then the network refresh. I like to think I'm a patient person, but darn it! When I'm in a hurry, I just want it to work LOL!
I shut off the power management in the device manager. Doesn't seem to be effected. But it did refresh rather quickly last time. Perhaps time will tell. And as long as it streams without hiccup, I'll be happy.
Thanks for your help. Much appreciated. I learned some new stuff today

Hello everyone. I'd like to know why win7 64bit decides by itself to auto refresh a window minute and literally the next second or two later it does not. Lets say, I save a pic from the net, just before I go into the browser I already have my downloads folder open. I save a couple pics and I go...
