Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

Just set up new emachine with linksys wirelsess G usb network adapter, which
works fine except when I leave the machine on, unattended, and the monitor
goes to sleep. When I return, the connection has to be repaired. Any ideas?

    it's going into energy save , stop that and the problem will be resolved
    , look in the bios first

    Try this also. Go to your wireless network properties, then click configure
    for the wireless-g usb adapter then the advanced tab and set "power save
    mode" to disable.

    Joe, I got to the advanced tab to configure the power saving mode, but
    disable is not an option. The drop down list contains CAM (constantly awake)
    which is the current setting, Fast_psp (Power Sve Mode) and Max_PSP (Max
    Power Saving Mode). What to do? Also, re uHU advise, what/where is the BIOS
    where I should look first, and how do I do that? I'm a novice and need baby
    steps. Thanks.

    You may also want to disable the Hibernate mode on the system: Go to Control
    Panel and run the Power Options application. On the Hibernate tab clear the
    box marked Enable Hibernation.

    Depending on the manufacturer the BIOS settings may be in a Utilities
    application or you may have to Re-Boot your system and go into System Setup
    before it loads the O/S.

    Hope this helps,

    OK I was hoping you had the same wireless-g usb as one that I have (Linksys
    WUSB54G) but mine doesn't say what yours does so it's probably a diff model
    or yours is a newer revision. I'd guess if what you're saying is those are
    all options in the same drop down I'd leave it at CAM (constantly awake) and
    check your system power management settings.

    Go to the control panel and select power options, all of my settings say
    never except the turn off monitor, I set mine to 30 minutes (your preference
    should be fine) and it never has the effect you're describing. I bet you'll
    find your disk, system standby or hybernate options have times set in them.
    At the least I'd disable hybernation (set to never), it seems to cause more
    problems on more systems than it solves. Sleep mode is also often
    problematic. As always your mileage may vary.
