I finally got my wireless router set up, had a good wireless connection all night. And then when I turn the computer back on in the morning, i get no internet connection. Either through IE or Firefox. This is the 2nd day in a row it happened. To fix it the first time, (I think) I changed the LAN settings on IE internet options, and checked off the box for WAN, or something like that, and it worked. Im wondering if there is something that can be done to fix this permanently. Thanks in advance

Hi. Just to confirm, you turn the computer off and then back on pretty much nightly right? You don't have your computer in hibernation or anything, do you?

i just shut the laptop at night, and when I open it in the morning, I just have to hit the power button once lightly to bring windows back up. Not completely shutting it down every night

Ah. Restart it. Wireless doesn't tend to like to work after hibernation or sleep mode, for some reason.

Agreed, that's your problem right there. Windows does all kinds of fun stuff when you hibernate. Restart, and everything should be in working order. :whistling:

No problem. Hibernation is good if you need to constantly come back to the system after leaving for a bit, but sometimes little things like this get in the way. Let us know if you have any more questions :whistling:
