Windows 7 losing Network connection after Standby

Postby guest » Tue Feb 03, 2009 4:26 pm

My PC is connected virelessly with my home network. When my desktop returns from the Standby mode, I lose Internet connection. The vireless status in the system trey shows "Identifying Network" forever. I also tried to disconnect and reconnect the vireless connection, and repair the network connection, but no go.

To resolve this issue, I have to reboot my PC. Did anyone else encountered the same problem? Any solutions?

Based on my research, I would like to suggest the following:

1. Disable Save Power function of the Wireless NIC.

1) Click Start, right click on Computer and choose Properties.

2) Click Device Manager.

3) Navigate to your Wireless NIC, right click on it and choose Properties.

4) Choose Power Management tab.

5) Please uncheck “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."

6) Restart the computer and check if it works.

2. Please perform a Clean Boot to check the issue.

Clean boot

=================
1) Click the Start Button type "msconfig" (without quotation marks) in the Search box, and then press Enter.

Note: If prompted, please click Continue on the User Account Control (UAC) window.

2) Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).

3) Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".

Then, restart the computer. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.

NOTE: we can go back to normal boot by running msconfig again and checking on Normal Startup in the General tab.

In the Clean Boot Environment, the third party services and applications are disabled, please hibernate the computer and wake it up again to see if it works.

If the problem does not occur, it indicates that the problem is related to one application or service we have disabled. You may use the MSCONFIG tool again to re-enable the disabled item one by one to find out the culprit.

3. Please apply all the updates and keep monitoring the Wireless NIC’s manufacture site to see if there is a new version of driver released for Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for that suggestion! I was having the same issue, and that solved it. I've only had Win7 Beta installed for a day, but so far that is my only complaint. Again, thank you!
