Slow computer frustration

Is your office computer running slow on the network? Perhaps, your computer frequently is not able to access server resources without error?  The answer may be just a mouse click away.

When a computer goes to sleep, or saves power; it tries to turn off the network card. When you leave your desk for lunch, or for the day your computer will power down the network card to save power. This power down breaks the network connection.

The next time you find yourself needing to restart the computer to reconnect. Yes, the fix is quite simple.

Go into the control panel of your computer.  Find the network settings, and then choose properties. Uncheck the setting that allows your computer to power off the network adapter. Problem solved!

side note: I recommend checking network card drivers to ensure they are up to date.
