Windows 7: Unable to connect to the internet after standby

Unable to connect to the internet after standby

Hello

I think this is a well known issue with Windows 7 and I think also Windows XP because I have the same problem with my old desktop PC which has Windows XP. As the title says I got some issues with both my laptop & desktop when coming from standby modus trying to connect to the internet. I'm lucky my laptop (and most other laptops) got a button to enable/disable the network card with a simple button on the keyboard or somewhere around there. But my PC hasn't got this button (just disconnect the cable from the USB adapter though). But still, my laptop & pc cannot seem to connect to the internet but they do can connect with the association point but the assocation point doesn't seem to be able to connect with the internet. Anybody else has this issue? I think it's a well known issue... It happens when I have put my laptop/desktop in standby and put it back on.

Hello,

I have 2 suggestions.

1) Update your network adapter drivers

2) Go into Device Manager and select Properties for your adapter. Go to the Power tab, and make sure the computer cannot put the router to sleep.

Hope this helps,

Hehe thanks for your quick reaction in first place, and yes indeed, the option to turn off the network card to save energy was enabled. I turned it off now so I will test it tonight (as I turn my laptop on standby mode when I go to bed).

Hope it will work ;-), it's not that annoying as I just need to click the network button 2 times and it's fixed.

Thanks in advance
