Windows 7: Windows 7 64bit, delayed connection to wireless internet upon wake-up?

Windows 7 64bit, delayed connection to wireless internet upon wake-up?

I apologize for asking this question yet again, because I know a lot of people have had the same issue before. I made this account specifically to ask for help.

After my computer wakes up from sleep mode it takes 2-5 minutes for it to successfully connect to the a wireless internet connection. However, when it's a fresh boot-up (whether after a shutdown or restart) it connects automatically. I know it's not my router because it happens wherever I am, not just at home (i.e. college campus, friends' houses, etc.). I have reinstalled the drivers for my computer (Intel R Wifi Link 1000 BGN), deleted and rediscovered all of the wireless profiles, and played around with permissions for the Wlansvc file (someone said it fixed their problem?). I'm still getting the delay. I'm at a loss and would really like the issue to be resolved.

I've been dealing with this since Aug. 2011 and I've only had the laptop since July 2011. If anyone has any suggestions, they're much appreciated, and if you need additional information I'll supply what I can.

I actually had the same problem on my HP laptop at home. I solved it by updating wireless driver to newer version, but I see you've done this.

I recommend you try different driver versions, even if they are slightly older. Also check windows optional updates to see what it offers.

You can also take a look at your power options and turn off the ability for the OS to put the device to sleep. Also check device manager and look for the WLAN adapter. There should be power options there.

Should I download an older driver from the Intel website? I usually look for the driver updates from the Dell website (I have an Alienware M14x), and I don't want to end up downloading the wrong things and messing my computer up somehow.

first check power options then fiddle with drivers. You can get from intel no problem as long as it matches your wifi card model. You won't really screw up anything that can't be fixed with a system restore or a driver rollback.

Fiddled with power options, tried older drivers, tried newer drivers. Nada. Nothing works. I'm out of ideas.
