    Since installing the 1803 Win 10 update middle of May, if my laptop goes into sleep mode and I subsequently "revive" it, I have no (wireless) Internet connection. Network settings says I AM CONNECTED, and it's SECURE. . . but I get a message that Edge cannot open any Internet page. If I open the list of wireless connections, click DISCONNECT, then immediately click CONNECT, it connects fine, and stays connected for as long as the session lasts. But if I close the laptop, which puts it into sleep mode, a later try to use it again, no Internet connection (despite it saying I'm connected). Is this a bug with 1803 or what?

    I haven't had that problem...although, since I have an SSD and use a desktop, I have "sleep" totally disabled. Haven't heard of the problem but someone will know about it here, surely.

    My desktop also has an SSD and I do NOT have sleep disabled, but have no disconnect problems with it. However, its OS is Win 7, not 10. I run a business from the desktop and didn't want to put 10 on it until I had tried it, so installed it on my (formerly Win 7) laptop. I am SOOOOOOO glad I didn't put it on the desktop; dislike 10 with a passion.

    Unfortunately, Windows 7 will not be serviced and is on it's way out the door. It's basically Windows 10, linux, or Mac for choices nowadays. Choice is a thing of the past, it seems.

    Click on the start button and type in the search box: Device Manager and hit enter. Look under Network adapters and expand the selection so you can find your wireless and ethernet adapters and the family controller if you have one. Right click on each and select properties. Look under the Power Management tab. If anything is checked, uncheck it. You don’t need to turn off any of these devices save power. Hit OK and close those windows. It should solve the problem. If those boxes were already unchecked, it’s something else.
