Windows 7 Sleep / Connectivity Issues

Postby guest » Tue Feb 03, 2009 4:42 pm

Hi there.

I'm having problems with a known issue:

Wireless networking
In certain wireless adapter and platform combinations, the wireless adapter may become disabled and no wireless network will be visible in the following scenarios:

When the computer resumes from the hibernate or sleep states

When the computer is processing multiple video streams simultaneously over the wireless link

Computers that have Microsoft Virtual PC installed


If your computer has Microsoft Virtual PC installed, you may be able to avoid this issue by uninstalling it. In all cases, if this occurs, restart the computer.

Unfortunatley, this is happening to me, when my laptop resumes from a sleep state, I can't connect to my network, when I go to restart the machine, it hangs on shutdown. Fixes I've tried: assign static IP address, reinstalled drivers, reset router, reset network adaptor, to no avail.

Has anyone found a fix for this. I've been really happy with Windows 7, i've not booted into vista much since i've installed, but since this has started a couple of days ago, it's really frustrating. I may re-install, but would like to see if there is a fix yet.

Thanks

Sam

Just an update, changing the power settings on the wireless adaptor has sorted the issue out. Since chagning it, my network connection has always stayed on when coming out of sleep.


many thanks.
