  1. hey,

    i have a laptop and a home pc that are connected to my wanadoo livebox router (ethernet and wireless)

    the problem is that when i plug in the ethernet cable or turn on the wireless for the first time after i boot up my computer the internet works perfectly, but if i unplug the cable or turn off the wirless for a while and then try to browse sites later the internet will not work. the only way to get the internet to work again is to restart the computer..

    the same thing happened up at my uni when i left the internet idle for too long, the laptop would need to be restarted..

    when i plug the cable and wireless in it connects to the network and says its fine but if i open a browser every page says cannot be displayed

    any settings i need to change??

    oh im on xp pro
