    Are you using the Wireless Zero Configuration? That's the one which comes with windows. Several computers come with third-party wireless software which disables WZC and ends up taking over the Wireless card. The most common culprit is Intel PRO Wireless.

    If so, then try to re-enable the WZC. That usually works much better than any third-pary software.

    Did you change the power setting in Device Manager to not allow the wireless NIC to power down in standby mode? FWIW, it's normal to lose the wireless connection in standby mode, but it should be re-established when you connect.

    Yeah i think i should put my problem this way. if for some reason i dont want to be on wireless network i have to disable it right? but when i want to resume... i get this messege...LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY from this point i will have to restart my laptop. alternatively i can put my laptop to standby mode and resume later... from that point i will not have internet.
    so if the computer is on... and i try to disable wireless and then enables again... trouble starts.
    i have chat online with hp help desk and change power management settings, change BIOS, change drivers and install new software for wireless , lately i have install winsockfix and nothing good happen...
    simple picture the problem this way... when you resumes from disabled wireless you wont get to wireless network...
