Windows 7: laptop sleep mode: internet lost upon wake-up

laptop sleep mode: internet lost upon wake-up

I am using Acer Travelmate 8204WLMi laptop running the latest RC build of Windows 7. The internet connection is lost on both LAN adapter and WLAN (3945ABG) adapter when laptop is restored from a 'sleep' mode. I have disabled 'Power Management' of each adapter via the Device Manager. I have updated to the latest set of updates.

Disabling and re-enabling LAN or WLAN adapter to restore connectivity does not work (as it does in Win-XP). I have tried to 'log off' and log back in but this does not work either. I have discovered that the only way to restore connectivity is to re-boot the laptop.

It would appear that there is an issue of the Windows 7 code to correctly manage the LAN/ WLAN adapters. Has anyone else come across this problem?

Windows 7 RC

Yes, exactly the same problem on a dell studio 15 (1555). I tried disabling the adaptor before sleep then re-enabling after waking but it did not help.

Same things happens here, and so far no luck with a solution. It's been going on for about 6 months now

Happening on an Asus m50Vm. HALP!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 - Mac OS X 10.6.4 x64

Alright guys...this problem is also being seen in another thread...

I have a Compal JFT02 with a 3945ABG card in it...and I don't have that problem. Now if you look at my specs I run 7264 and for me it doesn't occur in this build and (if memory serves me right) it didn't occur in the RC either. Please guys try this....install the latest chipset, video, and wireless card driver from intel...not your manufacture (what I did)

Hope it helps
