XP Sp3, monitor lan connect, restart adapter on hangup ?

Recommended Posts

viperpiper

I found this on another post but was wondering if this could be turned into a script that would monitor the wired lan connection for hangups and then disable and renable the lan adapter automatically.  For whatever reason on my winxp pc at work at some point in the evening it hangs on it's lan connection.  When I try to connect remotely I can't because of the loss of local area connection although the Icon on theh pc still shows it as connected.  The only way I can fix it, is either reboot the PC or disable and renable the lan adapter (which I can't do remotely).  So is there a script that would be able to do this using perhaps some of the code from below.  I tried the script from another post geared towards windows 7 to "automagically" diable and restart the adapter but it didn't seem to solve my problem.  

 

Any help appreciated.......newbie to all of this by the way.

viperpiper, did you notice the announcement at the top of this forum indicating this is not a general support forum? You will get a much better response if you request that it be moved to the appropriate forum.

viperpiper,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

But please pay attention to where you post - the "Examples" section where you started this thread is clearly marked: "This is NOT a general support forum!". I have moved the thread for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future. ;)

And when you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it. Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags. :)
