    Sleep/wake up have to reboot to get internet back again.


    Lately, when I put my desktop computer to sleep and when I wake it up again, I have to do a restart to get the internet back again. This is an intermittent problem and only has been happening recently. I was having a lot of trouble with Blue Screens of Death and the "Aw! Snap!" memory problems with Google Chrome so I was fooling around a lot trying to fix those problems. I turned out that I had a bad RAM chip so when I swapped the RAM cards out for new, the Blue Screens stopped happening as well as the Chrome memory problems ended. But, I cannot remember what all I messed with, settings wise.

    I use HughesNet satellite as my internet provider.

    Any idea of what I may have changed to cause this?

    Your ISP is more than likely The problem.

    This is probably your problem. Satellite use for getting on The Net is close to being worse than a dial Up. When I worked for EDS I installed/maintained Satellite Systems that at the time were on every GM Dealership, this was before the Net too hold. Get another provider , there has to be at least AT&T around where you live unless you are in The UP. I used to Live in The Detroit area. Dish use is very unstable due to weather, sun spots, the dis has to be pointed directly at the Satellite .

    Another one on possible ISP or Gateway issues.

    There are loads of other possibilities as well.

    It could be related to power settings, old drivers etc.


    You could do a clean install as a dual boot (installing in a virtual hard drive is a great way to do this) and see if issue goes away. That will confirm it is not an ISP issue, if issue goes away.

    There are outdated, but frequently used programs that I have been using since back in Windows 7 days that I cannot give up. For instance, MSWorks (Word Processor, Spread Sheet, and Database) that use for medical forms on which to log daily data that would result in much inconvenience of deleted. MSWorks used to come installed on earlier Windows computers...it no longer is. A "Clean Install" as I understand it, would delete such programs with no hope of getting them back and I am not willing to do that.

    If you do a non-destructive repair, you will not lose anything, but those ancient programs can go. Convert the database and other items to use with Google Doc's or LIbreoffice. You are opening yourself to security risks running outdated software that is way past its end of life. Google Fusion Tables, Oxygen Office, ParaSQL can all take the place of the MSworks Database.

    "...not lose anything..."? I have many programs I have added to my computer and according to my research on Windows 10 Reset, those would be removed. Re-downloading and installing all those is not something I would want to do to fix an intermittent issue. I have downloaded Liberoffice and it seems to be a viable replacement for MSWorks, so at least MSWorks can go.

    There are going to be some programs that if they are not digitally signed, a upgrade or reset can remove them. The non-destructive reset can cause items to be removed if you have not backed it up. Even Microsoft warns users that they are at risk when using the OS and need to do changes is that you are responsible for the risk.

    Preliminary use (I will note it if it happens again) suggests that this is the answer to my having to reboot after the computer has been sleeping, to get the internet back.
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com...m=w7itpromedia It has not happened since I unchecked the box, but it is way too early to conclude that doing so has solved the problem for sure. If it happens despite unchecking that box, I will report back here. Thanks for the suggestions.
