I have a cable modem connected through a Linksys router (wired). When I first turn my computer on everything is fine it detects the connection and off I go. My problem starts when I wake the computer up from sleep mode. At this point the connection is not recognized. I end up having to restart the machine and at which point the connection is detected again.

Anyone have suggestions? I have checked and installed all Windows updates

Which version of windows are you using. That would help out a little bit. Even my lenovo thinkcentre doesn't have a problem and I am running windows XP SP# 32bit over here. And it goes into hibernation over here.

So we can be of help, can we have the specs and model of your computer, and specifically, the model of your NIC (Network interface card), be it onboard or external

You have the same adapter as me and mine works fine. May I suggest reinstalling the drivers, see if that makes a difference.

Use these drivers from the Asus site http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/lan/Intel_Gigabit_V17200_XPWin7_8.zip
