When my computer is idle for for about an hour or more, I cannot cannot to the internet. IE 6.0 tries to open my home page, but is unable and I get an error message. However, after rebooting I am able to connect.

Not a major problem but it is annoying that I have to reboot to connect.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Go to devicce manager and check the advanced settings of your network card. You may have the power management set to turn off this device to save power.

Yes, that option was checked. I unchecked it - I'll see if that was the problem.

Thanks!!
