    Need to continuously reset network Adapter in windows vista

    I have a windows vista operating system In my computer. Well the problem is that I have to rest my network adapter everytime because it gives a lot of problem in the internet connection. These problem could not be seen while working with the windows xp operating system. I was thinking to switch to the windows 7 but one of my friends said that it is also giving the same problem with the windows 7 as well. So I had to think over my option of switching to the windows 7. Do anyone have any solution for this type of problem? Do let me know if you have any.

    Well looking at the problem it seems that there is some problem with the network adapter driver. Try updating the driver and it may solve your issue. You may get an update from the Microsoft website. So thatís why it is not difficult to get the updates. Other wise you can go to the control panel and go to the network settings and then go to the specific network adapter right click on it and check for the updates. You can update it from there also. So do go ahead and try this solution it will definitely help you.

    The other method that you can try is that try setting the factory default setting in the router. Once you have done that follow the given steps
    1) First turn off all the modem,router and computer as well.
    2) Start connecting the modem to the router Ďs wan/ internet port at the same time connect the computer to the routerís LAN port.
    3) Start with the modem and also start with the router as well. Start with the booting of the computer after all the three have started then check whether your issue still exist or not.

I really did not have any idea that such a simple installation of the driver will help me to such a extent. Anyways thanks a lot for making me remember about the update to the driver. Now my network adapter is really working well.
