reconnection problems using virtual router with USB modem

Apr 22, 2013 at 11:28 AM
I am using virtual router with a USB modem and running Windows 7.

The problem I am having is that if my modem loses its connection to the internet, I cannot reconnect; instead I receive a message about a connection failure. To reconnect to the internet i must restart my computer.

I know that this is being caused by some kind of conflict between virtual router and my modem because it does not happen unless virtual router is installed and running on my machine.

Does anyone know if there is some way I can fix this, or something I can do to "reset" the network without having to actually restart my machine? I have tried taking out my modem and reinserting it, restarting the modem software, stopping virtual router and force quitting the virtual router service, but none of this worked. I still needed to restart to get back online.

Hope someone can help. Thanks!
