I've got a computer running WinXP Pro and ZA Suite 7.0.337 that is on 24/7 used
almost solely as a file server on a small network.
Before updating to 7.0.337 I was having trouble with
once every week or two, this computer losing the ability to connect through the network to the internet, but local network connections remained active.
After I updated to 7.0.337, I thought I had the problem solved because it didn't happen again.
However, now the
"quiet period" after installation has elapsed and this morning I found that the internet connection is down.
What usually draws my attention to this is that
an online backup icon changes from green to yellow and says that its "waiting for an internet connection".
When I attempt to go online with IE7 I get a dns error message and no other programs, like AV updates are able to connect.
Rebooting the computer fixes the problem.
I'm wondering if there's a
program that is
asking for permission to run that's happening when I'm not around to notice it, that is stopping the internet connectivity dead in its tracks.
Any suggestions as to what might be causing this?
