Im not sure if this is under the right section but here it goes. I usually connect my laptop to my cable modem via USB cable. And whenever my laptop goes asleep when I close the lid and open it back up and the desktop loads it wont connect to the internet so I normally have to restart. When I look at the network connections and the properties where it says Send and Recieve that seems to move a lot slower after waking up my computer. Ive tried waiting a few minutes, repairing/renewing the ip address, pinging and it has even done this when I make a fresh installation of Windows XP. Is there anyway I can fix this so I wont have to restart everytime the laptop goes to sleep? Thank you in advance.

Has it always been like that or it's something that started latter?

If you have more then one USB port try to move the connection to another port.

Try to reinstall the modem driver.

If you connect other devices to the same USB port are they working well after sleep?

Its been doing that for the past month or so. If I stick my printer or usb drive they seem to work fine after sleep. Ill try reinstalling the drivers.
