    This phenona happens with both wireless and wired connection. When the
    computer is first turned on it acquires an address from and connects to the
    router normally. However, if I let the computer go to hibernate, when I turn
    it back on the initial connection is not there anymore and I have to "repair"
    it using XP's network connectio repair tab/function. I would appreciate any
    suggestions to make this stop.
    Here are some info that may help.
    I run Zone Alarm and have it automatically lock the internet connection when
    it goes to screen save. When out of screen save I have to tell Zone Alarm to
    open the connection. This is fine. I want this feature.
    Also, I run Norton Antivirus as well as XP2 firewall features.

    Thanks in advance.
