View Full Version : Local Area Network Adapter is disabled

It is amazing how such a powerful laptop can have this many errors on it...
Anyways, this time I have a problem with the wired internet ( ethernet )

Everytime I shut down or hibernate the computer, i cant connect back to internet?!?
I run the troubleshooter, either it cant find anything or after running it 3 times it says local area network adapter is disabled, I tell the troubleshooter to enable it and the problem goes away

Any idea why it disables itsself?
Also is there a way to enable it without the troubleshooter?

If anyone else is experiencing the same problem :

View network connections => Right click on the connection => Properties => Configure => Power management => Unclick allow this device to unable itsself to save power
