Windows 7: Must Reinstall Intel Wireless After Hibernation???

Must Reinstall Intel Wireless After Hibernation???

I'm running Win7 build 7000 x64.

When I wake my laptop from hibernation my wireless card doesn't work. Even if I restart my laptop, the wireless is not working.

I always have to reinstall my intel wireless driver to get wireless internet back.

Has anyone come across this problem too? Any ideas why this happens?

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

There are many bugs in build 7000.
I would try and use the sleep function and see if that works.
The later builds are less buggy. :)
