Windows 7: Ethernet LAN losing connection on lid close.

17 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Ethernet LAN losing connection on lid close.

I'm sharing WiFi received on my wireless card for my Windows 7 laptop and am rebroadcasting it to a router using the Ethernet port. Before I could close the lid and everything would run just fine. Now when I close the lid the Internet seems to completely stop, but not break connection. The wireless seems to be progressing fine on the laptop but the Ethernet stops sending/receiving data(afaik). I checked to ensure that nothing is set to sleep, and Windows is not allowed to disable that device.

Any suggestions?
