Loose network connection LN46C630

by bett77 / November 2, 2010 12:40 PM PDT


I keep loosing the connection between my computer and my TV.
They are connected by a ethernet wire cross-over.
I tried connecting the computer directly to the TV and by wireless router (TV to router by ethernet wire cross-over, then router to my computer by ethernet normal wire.)
Everything I tried give me the same result, I watch a movie and then I got the message on my TV that it's deconnected.
I have Windows 7 home premium 64 bits and Share PC manager 4.2.
I tried reinstalling Share pc manager, same result.

Anyone has a solution?

That's not a standard setup. Too much can go wrong.

Try it like it's meant to be setup with a router. There was no need to use a CROSS OVER cable. A normal cable will do fine. I've lost count of how many times folk make their own cables. Are you doing that?

Check your windows power management. The disc may be powering down after no activity - I think that's the default setting. [Sometimes the streaming isn't seen as "activity" - maybe it only counts a "seek" at the start of an access.]

Cross over cable and router
by bett77 / November 2, 2010 10:42 PM PDT

I use a croos over cable because it's the only I have long enough to connect both.
On the web, I read that both cross over and "normal" can be use.
The cross over cable is not homemade.
What do you mean by:"Try it like it's meant to be setup with a router"?

It's not powering down, because I can be working on the computer when it lose the network connection.

Any other ideas?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
