Vista Ultimate SP1 looses network connection
At least once a day my I notice all my network applications like Skype, GTalk
etc are trying to login again and I can't reach the internet with IE. When I
look at Network Sharing Center instead of the usual Home (private) network I
now have that and another Unknown Network, or only the Unknown Network shown.
If I reboot I get just the Home network showing and everything works again.
Sometimes I can disable the local area network adapter and re-enable it and
the connection stays up for a while. Other times trying to disable lan
adapter gives perpetual hourglass. Can anyone shed some light on this? I was
hoping not to have to reboot so often.

Just wondering but does your system go into Sleep mode when you leave
it? I have this problem with four of the dells running Vista Business
and all we ( the dell techs and I) came up with was to go into power
management and turn off sleep.

Re: Vista Ultimate SP1 looses network connection
Yes, it happens when Vista comes out of sleep mode. As far as I can make out
a second network is created "Unknonw Network" which has IP 0.0.0.0 Also the
default gateway appears to have been changed to 0.0.0.0. I sometimes can
disable and enable the network adapter and it reconnects, other times I have
to reboot.

I'm going to try using static IP instead of DCHP and see fit that cures it.
Not a good fix on a LAN but I'm working out of a home office.

Here's my config.sys taken when my system has been disconnected:
