    I set the power management for a number of minutes, and after the computer has been asleep there`s no internet connection. I restart the computer and then the internet connection is back on. Is there something that`s not set? It`s a Windows 7 computer.:)

    This problem was far more prevalent in XP than it is in Vista and Windows 7, but still occurs. Make sure you have the latest correct network driver. If it is an integrated adapter get the driver from the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site.

    Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure.

    If the problem still occurs you could try a different adapter or router. The workaround I use (less trouble than a reboot) when I run into this is to disconnect before Sleeping, and then reconnect after awakening.
