Is this a wired or wireless connection?

Same machine as your specs show?

Can you post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all ?

Using a static IP, have you tried switching to DHCP just to see if anything changes.

You might also try disabling the Bluetooth device and the tether Ethernet adaptor in Device Manager>Network adaptors.


There are some new drivers for your Asus P8P67 , they might be worth trying who knows although they show Intel Ethernet for your board. They show some chipset drivers also.

I noticed that particular setting seems to cause problems for certain machines, it should be coming right out of power saving mode but instead it seems to be stuck in power saving mode.

I wonder if the Power Options Advanced settings would have an effect on this.


Glad that you have it fixed Total.

I've been getting internet connection on and off all day today, thinking it was just Comcast. But every time I went to look at the modem, it was still functioning fine, and the router's local status site told me it was working fine. Well, now it's not working. I tried restoring back to an old...
