Today suddenly my router homepage 192.168.1.1 is not opening .
The net was also not working .
Router was connected to LAN card.

But when i connected it via USB it worked and even my internet is working.

The problem is this USB connection is that it is unreliable as it disconnects after i keep my comp idle. Dont kno why.

I reinstalled XP to check Operating system problem but its not.

Help me with this.

sounds like somethings wrong with the NIC driverstry uninstalling ur NIC(aka LAN) card from device manager and then reinstalling it from Add new hardware(Control panel)its relatively simple on WinXP/Server2003, on other OSes u might want to keep that Driver CD handyheres howRight Click the my computer icon on the desktop - select propertieson System Properties window go to the Hardware tab and click on Device managerclick on network adapters , it would drop down with one or mode devices, most ppl have just one NIC, it would say something like "10/100 fast ethernet adapter" or something of that sort, right click it and select Uninstallno to reinstall it click Start then control panel then Add new hardware, run the wizard.its my first post herehope it made sense and was of use

as someone very wisely said, half of the windows problems are solved with just a simple restart :p

Some things in windows, which say require "a" restart, actually work after restarting 2-3 times. :lol:
