Windows 7: Internet connection failing and preventing sleep mode.

08 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Internet connection failing and preventing sleep mode.

Sometimes when i try to connect to a wifi connection(linksys,not mine one of my neighbors)it will fail to connect.Whats more the little window that pops up freezes,and when i try to close or reset the window explorer resets,and i still can't connect.
When i close the laptop and it goes into sleep mode,i am unable to revive it.
I am fairly certain this is keeping my computer up because i noticed the wireless light does not go off when this happens.

If it helps,im running Windows 7 home 64bit,and i am using a dell n5110 with intel core i5.
Any suggestions?
