I've been watching this thread...
Tried to install the package, but couldn't do it.
Said it couldn't find any compatible hardware, so I guess I can't find the driver version.

Sure - there is a link between the sleep/WiFi thing. That is what the HP thread is all about. It could be that the current driver puts the WiFi card into a state where it overheats and/or locks up. Putting it to sleep resets that condition. The older/original drivers might not do that.

You might try setting the power level to 75%.
Interesting...

I did set the power level to 75% but no change.

...or it could be just the opposite: e.g. the current drivers might ignore power settings thus allowing the wireless card to sleep after so many seconds of being idle.

Edit: that would explain why going thru the wake up process makes the card work.

You could try running a constant ping. See the attached file.

That is possible, I guess.

By the way, I'm running the attached file for about 1 minute now and it keeps on going and going.
The wireless is on since I've put the laptop to sleep, resumed the session then downloaded the file to the laptop, via the wireless signal.

Must I wait more, or I'm looking to find something?
It keeps saying "Reply from 209.85.148.102: bytes=32 time=71ms (some have more, some less) TTL=50 (same as time, some have a different value;50,51)" and the list goes further.

Edit: It went through "Request timed out" once, then the list continued.

Edit 2: Wireless connectivity went off and I keep on getting "Destination host unreachable".
I stopped the batch file.

You can minimize that window and just let it run all of the time that you use the laptop. If the wireless never disconnects like it was doing before, then we know a bit more about why it fails. Your work around might be to always run that ping window... but I have my doubts that this will be the "fix".

I also noticed that if I put the laptop to sleep and immediately wake it up, wireless won't turn on.
I must let the laptop "sleep" a few seconds and then resume the session.
Guess that happens so the card can cool down...

Wireless still dropped, unfortunately.

Bummer.
Is the time from wake up to dropping out about the same each time? Does it get shorter if the wireless card it working hard - like transferring a large file to another computer on your network?

It's about the same, from what I can tell.
Will try to download a file and see how much it stays on.

You might want to buy a different brand of wireless card... not sure what else to try.

Did the "test" and it stays about the same time on, 2-3 mins.

Not quite the solution I was expecting.

Sorry for double posting, but...bumpity bump.

No other ideas?
I mean, wireless worked fine with the preinstalled Windows.
