    Hibernation or sleep loses Internet connectivity!


    Whatever modem/router I use (except my old 2Wire that died in Dec. 2010), I lose connectivity after I resume/wakeup. The tray icon says "connected", but my browser (Firefox) or my email client (Thunderbird) say "no"!

    System specs? Laptop/desktop? Router model/make?

    More details please, help us help you =)

    The problem was solved by a complete reinstall of Windows 7, including a quick reformat of the hard disk! Thanks for all your suggestions!
