Windows 8 Internet problem has become worse while setting up internet connectivity for the first time. As we have already discussed about Windows 8, a new invention from Microsoft for the digital future, we have also discussed some of the problems pertaining to Win 8 like, Windows 8 Audio problem here I will discuss and try to solve a new Windows 8 issue pertaining to Internet connection.
I guess many have already started using Windows 8 Consumer Preview edition, and also may have faced a serious problem of the Internet. The Internet connection cuts off suddenly and does not connect again. As a hardcore computer user I download tons and tons of stuff, but when I try to keep a download in the night and check in the morning, the file will not even be downloaded at least 20%. So I went on it and found a solution.
Here the actual problem was, as soon as computer is idle for more than an hour or long, and even when it goes to sleep mode or such things the internet is disconnecting and not connecting again until we restart the PC. The thing happening inside is as soon as the computer goes idle, the hardware, i.e., Network adapter is turned off. Here are steps to overcome it.
Go to Device Manager. This may be done by either typing devmgmt.msc in the RUN terminal or right clicking at the left bottom corner and selecting Device Manager.
Now under Network Adapters drop-down menu, select your Network controller, in my case it is Realtek PCI Family Controller. And in that right click and select Properties.
Now under Power Management menu uncheck the box for ‘Allow this Computer to turn off this device to Save Power‘ option and press OK.
And now the problem won’t be there again.
Kindly add a comment saying did this work or not? Or any new problems faced after this change. We would love to reply your every question.
