After sleep and/or hibernation, I can't get my LAN connection to work. Windows reports "Local Area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration". Disabling and enabling the adapter doesn't work just like going through windows' network troubleshooting. Only thing that helps is a reboot.
I already tried:
- disabling "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in adapter settings
- resetting winsock and ip configs through netsh
- updating drivers
- removing network locations in Network and Sharing Center
I'm on a laptop with Win7 64-bit, LAN adapter is reported as Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.
I share the wired connection using ICS through WLAN and netsh hostednetwork to occasionally connect my phone to wifi.
