Windows 7: Network disconnects when computer sleeps & wont reconnect

The problem where the Network drops connection when I put my computer to sleep is fixed. It dropped the connection randomly during my use this morning, but I'll let you know if it happens again.

For those reading this and looking for the end solution:
I uninstalled the Intel Network Drivers from the Device Manager and I uninstalled the Intel programs from add/remove programs. After that, I installed the appropriate Intel Network Driver for my computer from the Intel website.

That's good that the sleep connection drop is fixed.

For the random connection drops you should install InSSIDer which shows the wireless landscape in your area, from that we can make adjustments. Just post a screen shot of the read out from InSSIDer.

No wonder you are seeing disconnections, you are using the same channel as one of your own access points or maybe your own guest account, and the signal strength is the same so it's cutting right into your signal on channel 11.

I'm not completely sure if this is a guest wireless account or what because they both have the same SSID?

You will want to go into the routers settings for wireless and change the channel to 1 which will give you a clean signal. Those signals need to be on a different channel.

It looks like your own access point in this case but both networks here are overlapping each other which will cause problems.

Really? Wow. Earlier in this thread, someone had me change it to 11. I'll go to 1.

Is this just one router? If so you should disable the guest wireless account.

There appears to be a wireless guest connection showing here with the same SSID and it's sitting right on top of the other wireless signal so it's hard to tell them apart.

So when you change the channel I believe it changes the channel on both which is a problem.

I only have one router, my neighbor and I don't share.

In that case see if you can find a setting for a wireless guest connection, it's there somewhere, don't bother with changing channels in this case because it's changing both of them.

Just disable the wireless guest connection for now.

Which of these do you think I'd find it in?

its probably going to be under wireless or maybe check connection. But if it comes down to it you may just have to check each tab until you find it.
