Windows 7: Desktop slow to connect to internet after sleep

Desktop slow to connect to internet after sleep

I've noticed my wired desktop seems to be taking longer to connect to the network/internet after coming out of sleep mode. Not that big a deal except I have MBAM real time and the database updates are constantly failing because when the program tries to wake my computer to update, the internet connection doesn't get established quick enough to download the database and it errors.

AFAIK nothing has changed on my system. The connection used to be pretty instantaneous after waking but now can take 10-30 seconds. Any ideas?

Have you tried the usual suspects? I.E. malware scans? Is it the same after a re-boot? You could also try a sfc/scannow but I don't think your problem lies there, however you never know and it couldn't hurt.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
