Windows 7: Windows 7 Laptop Can't Find Network After Sleeping

Windows 7 Laptop Can't Find Network After Sleeping

I have a Dell Latitude E7450 running Windows 7, 64 bit, which works fine. Except...

Whenever I put it to sleep, on waking, it cannot find any WiFi network. I constantly move between my office and home, and each time I do, I have to reboot so that I can find the network.

If I actually physically plug it into the network, it works fine, but it can't find any WiFi network at all - just endlessly thinks about it and fails to find anything.

Laptop Not Sleeping
I changed the setting to not sleep when I close the lid while plugged in, however whenever I do press the sleep button on the start menu and close the lid, the laptop boots up again. Would this be a windows error that needs re installation, or is it a hardware issue? Thanks in advance
