Someone tell me how the !@#!@ to fix this... I connect for 2-3 minutes, disconnect and have to reconnect. Only happens on this PC. No clue. IBM T42 if anyone cares, never had problems.
I got the same message using my IBM T42. My network card is still working flawlessly however.
I noticed that when you turn on the "Routing and Remote Access" service on, ipconfig works again. But the issue is still a mystery to me.
Did you update the drivers and other software through "thinkvantage", lenovo's update utility? I did that recently and I think I started seeing this problem after the updates.
Unless you have a winsock or virus issue like this page (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Network ... 60542.html
) suggests, it may be a driver issue.
Let me know if you run into anything more enlightening.
