Sharing problem after bootup from hibernation
js20737 Jan-25-01 07:03 AM
Hello all!

I've got a laptop with WinME and a desktop with Win98SE, connected by an SMC 7004 Barricade router, using NetBEUI for file & print sharing and TCP/IP for internet sharing. Except for a few glitches, my file, print, and internet sharing work great.

However, I've noticed that when I start up my laptop from "Hibernate" mode (as opposed to starting from power-off, which is much slower), I can't connect to my other computer. It's as if I'm not even logged on; I've tried messing with various commands like "net start", but can't get anything to work. Does anyone know what commands I need to issue to get my file & print sharing back up and running when I start up this way?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Jeff, Its probably being caused by no response to heart beat packets. Try reseating the PCMCIA card (PCMCIA cards are supposedly designed for hot insertion (bad choice of words, perhaps), disconnecting and reconnecting the network cable, logoff and log back on, use standby instead of hibernate, upgrade to Win 2K (sounds like a Microsoft line), suffer like the rest of us who network and haven given up hibernation. My computer doesn't resume network connections either, or it does so with enough problems, I have shut down. Larry

Interesting point related to our ongoing discussion regarding the SMC Barricade stability problems under V1.90E. One of the machines on my network is running Windows98 and goes into suspend mode. Last night I powered down this computer rather than letting it go into hibernation. I will test tonight letting the computer suspend, to see if the router crashes again.

Curiously, this was one of the questions the SMC technician asked when I called them for help.
