Windows 7: Hibernation or sleep loses Internet connectivity!

Hibernation or sleep loses Internet connectivity!

Whatever modem/router I use (except my old 2Wire that died in Dec. 2010), I lose connectivity after I resume/wakeup. The tray icon says "connected", but my browser (Firefox) or my email client (Thunderbird) say "no"!

The problem was solved by a complete reinstall of Windows 7, including a quick reformat of the hard disk! Thanks for all your suggestions!
