    Okay here's the issue in steps. First I boot up my computer. I close it over. come back later. open it. Computer will connect but with the small yellow triangle. Thing is though, it's only my computer that ever has issues with my internet connection. My sisters laptop has never had an issue with out internet. Yet my laptop is able to connect to the neighbors internet fine. The solution to my problem almost all of the time is to simply reboot my computer, which solves the problem(most of the time). But i'm getting so sick of having to do it. The other times when a reboot doesn't work I have to manually reset the internet. As i'm typing this I'm on my neighbors internet. my sister is connected fine to our internet but my laptop simply won't work with it so i'll have to reset it when i'm finished this ;) Some useful information might be that this problem only started happening ever since my computer got wiped.I've tried updating the drivers but apparently they're up to date. Before that I never had an issue. Does anyone have any possible solutions? Thank you in advance :(

    TLDR: basically my laptop has very exclusive issues. either my internet hates my laptop, or my laptop hates my internet. Hopefully someone can help me distinguish which one it is ;)

    When you wiped your laptop, did you do a factory restore? You may be missing some vendor-provided management software.

    Doesn't like coming out of sleep mode... Check power options / device manager to see if there is any sections there that would stop the connection after going to sleep.

    What action is taken when the lid is closed?

    If you are using an integrated wireless adapter do you have the latest driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site?

    Hmmm, thanks for the tips. I'm not sure if it's solved yet :L I tried updating my drivers several times before throught the use of the device manager but it told me my drivers were all up to date. I found a more up to date version online and installed it manually. Hopefully it will have solved the problem :p I'll post if the problem persists :)

    Alas, the problem still persists. When my computer wiped it went through vaio recovery or something along the lines of that.
