A320n network problems after hybernate

I have a consistant problem with my network. Everytime I hybernate the system and then bring it back up, the network connection does not work and I have to disable/enable it to get it to work again. I am using a full DHCP setup, however ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew all does not solve the problem. Only a disable/enable acts as a work around. No other PC's on my network have this problem.

Re: A320n network problems after hybernate


There is a newer BIOS here (amongst other things):〈=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&os=228

There is a newer LAN driver embedded here:

BTW, your chipset is nVidia nForce2 per:〈=en&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c00006476

Make a great day!
