Windows 7: Wireless adapter does not connect

Wireless adapter does not connect

Hello,

I have a laptop (HP Compaq cq62) with Windows 7 64 bit and I have a strange problem with my wireless adapter.

When I close the lid the laptop goes into sleep mode. When I open the lid and log in on my laptop, the wireless adapter can not find any routers. I have to go to my network settings window, disable my wireless adapter, enable the wireless adapter and then it is working.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Obviously, I just want to open my lid and direct have internet access instead of disable/enable the wireless adapter.

Thanks.

Go into Control Panel, Power Options, Change Plan Settings, Change Advanced Settings and disable the setting to allow the Wireless to be turned off. That usually fixes this kind of problem.

You could also check the manufacturers web site and see if there is an updated driver for your wireless device.

You will need the full model number as there are many different ones available: Select a product or category from the list below - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Thank you for giving some solutions. However, I wanted to try the first one, I went to advanced enery savings and then I expanded ´Setting for wireless network adapter´. The option I have selected is ´maximum performance´ on both (battery and power). Is this what you meant?

I don't have a Windows 7 laptop to check this on so I'm not sure. Hopefully someone else with one can check and verify.

I have updated my driver for the wireless adapter and it seems that it is working as it should be
