Vista lost connection permenenatly

I have just built a computer and installed a copy of Vista Ultimate 64 bit legit copy of course. I installed with all newest drivers and updated Vista with all the updates. I left the computer running for hours when I come back the computer was off. Probably screwed up going into hibernate mode. When I reboot the machine it said windows did not shutdown properly choose start normally. After restarting I lost the internet connection, got an x through the little icon. So I rebooted the machine tried turning it on and off multiple times still no internet connection. Tried to set up new connection and it can not find and connection. When I boot into my trusty ubuntu {linux} internet works just fine so it's not the hardware. Any suggestions on restoring my internet?

  1. I have just built a computer and installed a copy of Vista Ultimate 64 bit legit copy of course. I installed with all newest drivers and updated Vista with all the updates. I left the computer running for hours when I come back the computer was off. Probably screwed up going into hibernate mode. When I reboot the machine it said windows did not shutdown properly choose start normally. After restarting I lost the internet connection, got an x through the little icon. So I rebooted the machine tried turning it on and off multiple times still no internet connection. Tried to set up new connection and it can not find and connection. When I boot into my trusty ubuntu {linux} inernet works just fine so it's not the hardware. Any suggestions on restoring my internet?

    By the way searching on the internet it seems the following is helps if you know hwat it means. I tried unchecking the power saing feature in the Realtek ethernet devices, both of them and it did not help.

  2. Ok by fiddling with the power management for the whole computer the ethernet cards got not recognized then recognized again with internet working. Conclusion Vista sucks Linux rules.
  3. Conclusion is that you can't blame the OS for your mistake.

    :P

    Vista works just great for me and always has.
  4. i had the same problem...i had no internet after a hibernation..lukely i had 2 other computers to troubleshot and i found 1 working solution..shut your pc then pull out the powercable ..press your on butten to know for sure there is no more power in the machine an leave it for about 15-30 min...put everything back and start up your pc and just go online....don't for get to shut hibernation off !!....what is the problem : vista put everything in hibernation even your lan port..but when you go out off hibernation the only thing is that you lan port doesn't so you can do what you want even re instal you os/driver that won't help....good luck and greating from ferdy from holland
