Windows 7: wireless card problem with windows 7

wireless card problem with windows 7

My Thinkpad t61p wifi works at home.

When I take it from home to campus under sleep mode, the connection of campus wifi status becomes "limited access." no matter I disconnect and reconnect, it just won't work.

After I reinstall the wireless card driver without reboot the machine, it worked temporarily.
So, every time I move my laptop to another location under sleep mode, I have to reinstall wireless card driver, or disable wireless card in device manager then enable it again... or otherwise I have to turn off my laptop before I go.


Has anyone had the same problem? Is there a solution besides reinstall OS...

I'm currently using windows 7 64bit
Interl(R) Wireless Wifi Link 4965AGN w/ driver version: 13.0.0.107

Hi and welcome

Can you type device manager in search and go to the network tab. Is you card listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it? Is there any other unknown drivers with yellow on them?

Thanks for reply! Under my "network adapters" tab, there are 2 devices
- Intel(R) 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection
and
- Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
both driver are properly installed, and working fine most of the time except for after waking up from sleep mode in another wifi network.
