Windows 10: Delayed Network Copnnectivity after Sleep or Startup

    Delayed Network Connectivity after Sleep or Startup


    I have Windows 10 Pro installation on an ASUS Z170-A motherboard, Intel i5-660K processor, and an embedded Gigabit Intel LAN connection with an Intel I219-V Gigabit LAN network adapter with current drivers and BIOS. Upon startup/sign in or after sleep the network does not connect immediately. It can take 5-10 seconds or more to regain the network connectivity. Does anyone have any advice on this?

    That is typical behavior. If the device does not get the IRQ request for a while, it will sit there waiting.

    Also with the Wifi on the Gateway, it can drop the lease and the computer could still have the old lease info.

    The IP assignment is static. This is not a WiFi issue, it is the Ethernet connection. I do not believe this is typical behavior in my experience. My other computer with an ASUS P8P67 motherboard with a Realtek 8111E Gigabit LAN controller does not exhibit this behavior.

    It really does not matter. This has been an ongoing issue since XP SP3. It is an issue with Sleep State S3, that the manufacturer and Microsoft refuses to resolve.

    Why do the specifics I indicated not matter?

    Because it has been an issue since XP SP3 as I stated above.

    You missed the point that this behavior does not occur on the other system I use, and further I have never seen it before in dealing with multiple (literally thousands) of systems in an enterprise IT environment.

    I am hopeing someone else has something constructive to offer. Thanks.

    Incorrect. The behavior has been around as I stated since XP SP3. It is both a Microsoft and OEM of Motherboards and computer issue, that neither will own up to.

    If you do not have on the device in Device Manager to place unit to sleep. It is the same problem that has been ongoing since the day that XP SP3 was released.

    The S3 state is the normal sleep state. When thr machine wakes up, the Network adapters are the last thing to come back to life. In turn they end up not seeing the A/P Beacon, because the Gateway or A/P has stopped looking for the device and has throttled down to conserve power if it does not have the extra packets from the device that you are dealing with.

    You can check PowerCfg for any issues with Sleep behavior. It may also mean changing the advanced power settings.

    This is not my first rodeo in dealing with this issue. I have dealt with it since XP SP3 came out, with friends who have dealt with the problem with certain OEM computers and network chipsets.

    I also highly doubt that you have seen thousands of workstations in the Enterprise with this issue. Since workstations are not allowed to be powered down on a Domain, unless IT and management tells the workers to power them down.

    If it does ever happen on a Domain. It is an easy fix if you know what you are doing.

    Someone may come along and aak you to go through some tests. But the overall consensus is what I have stated twice already.

    I have been doing this stuff for almost 40 years. I do know a thing or two about computers and networking.

    I probably spend more time dealing with servers and networking then those who work with them in a workplace.

    You may highly doubt that I saw this but I did, and your assertion on domain policies did not apply to the enterprise in question.

    Since you are the only one replying there is no "consensus of opinion." (You cannot have a consensus with only one person's opinion.)

    Thank you again for your opinion, but is of no help. It is simply a complaint about a behavior that does not match my prior experiences.
