I have all of my computers (4 of them) hard wired into the router.
Then the other day my step-daughter needed to print something out from her computer that had a program on it that mine did not have and my computer is the only one with a printer (the kids 10 and she'll print out anything). So I created a home network so I could enable printer sharing and then the problems started.
Now the internet on my machine and my machine only keeps losing my internet connection only when I wake up this machine from sleep mode
(I guess it is going into to sleep mode) It is fine when I first
turn it on in the morning (because of this problem I can longer just keep it on all the time - I have to shut it down at night). Anyway, if I walk away from my machine for a period of time, when I come back and wake it up it loses the internet connection and then everything is slow. So I have to shut it down and then when I restart it - everything is fine!
I tried disconnecting from the home network to see if this would stop the problem - but it has not!
I am new to windows 7 and I only know a small bit about networking.
As I said all the machines are hard wired in
and they all are protected by NOD32 anti virus. I have a Linksys E3000 router and I have the highest security setting on it WPA SPK something or WPA2.
