I have an HP-Compaq 8200 running Windows 7 64 bit. Approx once a day the internet connection drops - there has been no problem with my internet service or connection as I run another machine that has had a continuous connection.
The error message I receives says that the Local Area Connection does not have a valid IP address.
Via the control panel I can fix the problem temporarily and I receive a message saying that the connection was reset.
How can I fix this permanently so that it does not drop every day and thus does not need a temporary fix every day?
Any help much appreciated.

See if updating the network driver from Intel works.
2nd download is the 64 bit driver.

Thanks very much.
I've installed the drivers. Time will tell if it works. If I have no more drops I'll post next week to confirm that the fix worked.
Thanks again and have a great weekend.

You're very welcome.
I have my 8200 Elite hooked up to my network wirelessly, so I can't see if my onboard NIC has the same issue as yours.
Wirelessly, it is flawless.
Hopefully the Intel driver update will work.
You have a great weekend as well.
