Windows 7: Wireless Connection Takes time to connect after Sleep

Wireless Connection Takes time to connect after Sleep

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

I usually let the laptop go to sleep and when i wake the computer, the wireless connection takes about 2 or 3 minutes to reconnect to the network.

I have another win 7 laptop that connects as soon as it wakes up but this one does not do that.

The wireless connects fine when i boot the computer but its just after Sleep and wake.

The wireless symbol right bottom of the screen tells me that there are wireless networks in the vicinity but takes some time to connect; I have set my network to connect automatically if it detects it.

I have done fair bit of googling but nothing has seemed to be the solution.

THanks

An application or service that's running in the background may be causing the connection delay.
Open Windows Help, type "run selective startup with system configuration" in the search box, press Enter, and follow the instructions.

Here's another option that has helped others with the same problem.
Open Control Panel/Device Manager, click the arrow next to Network Adapters, double click the wired network card(not the WiFi card), click the Driver tab, click Disable, click OK, go back to the Driver tab, click Enable, and click OK.

I have this problem. In Network Adapters I have Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter and Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. Do you mean the Realtek card in this case?

Thanks.

Got it, thanks.

Makes no difference though.
