Cannot connect to router after sleep mode.

Hi, hopefully someone can help me out as I'm not very knowledgeable.

Here's the scoop:

I have a desktop pc running windows 7, part of my homegroup, which is shared with a laptop and about 4 other devices.

I have a n600 belkin dualband router.

The problem only happens with the desktop pc enters sleep mode. Upon waking, I cannot connect to the network nor have internet access.

I have turned on my phones hotspot and can get online. The only thing that usually fixes it is a restart.

The desktop connects to the network via a D-link n150 usb thing.

Thanks in advance.

Farqual, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

You might want to check the power options of your network adapter, Looks like it is powering down when not used for a while. go to devices and check under properties of the power options on your ethernet adapter, making sure that it is not checked to allow the OS to turn off to save power.

Connect router wirelessly to main router
Recently I bought a TP-Link WR841N router and, unaware of what it needed, there had to be an ethernet cable coming from the main router (BT Homehub 3) for it to work. Is there any way I can connect these two wirelessly? I don't mind whatever way I connect it to my PC.
