Windows 7: Internal Wireless NIC Won't Resume from Sleep

Internal Wireless NIC Won't Resume from Sleep

My Windows 7 Ultimate desktop PC was working fine but in the last few days has developed a problem where the internal PCI wireless network card (Realtek 8185-based) will not restart after sleep mode. When I enter Device Manager it is not listed, but if I "Scan for hardware changes" it gets found and reinstalled so that it's working again.

Any suggestions on how I can get this back to working normally? Thanks.

Realtek 8187 wireless driver stops working after sleep mode

From MS, about Vista. Since 7 is essentially Vista, under the hood, this would apply to you to. Maybe not the definitive solution, but a clear road on where to look.

Ty for the rep and the kind words. Rep is a way of saying TY, but it also lets the members know what works and what does not. Thanks again
