How to stop wifi disconnecting when swiching from USER to ADMIN.

Sooooo, how do I stop my wifi disconnecting in the USER account when switching the to ADMIN account.
Some of the programs I have do not allow me to use an elevated command prompt in the USER account, so when I switch back to the USER account from the ADMIN account, my wifi is disconnected............
This has seriously turned into a pain in the (3 letter word, last 2 being 'S'), is there a fix?! I've looked but I'm thinking I've missed something.

Hi Michael....

See if disabling the Power Management Mode of your Wi-Fi adapter would help. You might have to do this when logged on as an Admin in the same computer, log off then log on as a User.
