Windows 7: Losing my LAN connection when computer goes to sleep

Losing my LAN connection when computer goes to sleep

On my laptop which uses wired LAN, I am finding that when it goes to sleep and then I wake it up, the network/internet connection is lost. This began a few days ago when decided to give Windows 8 Consumer Preview a try. I had other issues with Win 8, so I decided to revert back to Win 7, as it used to be, and did a clean install of Win 7 SP1 32-bit, updated all the drivers, installed all the essential windows update. In short, I have a pristine system, running Windows 7 32-bit. But, this LAN disconnect problem, which I only began to notice with the switch to Win 8, came back. The only way for me to get the LAN back is to reboot the laptop. I made sure that in the LAN Adapter setting I have the "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" is unchecked. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you tried uninstalling the driver from Device Manager then install the latest driver?

I got the latest drivers from Realtek, installed them, and the problem was solved.
