So this has been going on for weeks and weeks, I am just not sure how to fix it, so i decided to come here.

When i turn off my laptop to goto bed, i have internet access (the connection is wireless, D-link 802.11/2.4ghz, DI-524). When i wake up, I lose the connection, but it still says its connected to my wireless network. To fix it, i've just been disconnecting, and reconnecting, but its getting kind of tedious to say the least!

Any fixes? or am i stuck with a faulty network card?


Thank you.

Your ISP is automatically disconnecting you after a couple of hours of inactivity?

But my PS3 is wired to the wireless router with ethernet, and doesn't have these problems.

Also, this just started happening when i put a password on my wireless network.

When you power down the laptop you lose connection to the network. When you power it back up, you need to type in your password to re-authenticate yourself to the network. If it has a 'remember me' or an 'auto-connect me' type setting, use it.
