    I don't understand why when I hibernate or standby, when I turn the computer back on, the computer says that it is connected and gives a speed but I can't get any thing to load. I have avg & Zone alarm free, I make sure the internet is not frozen by the zone alarm. If I "restart" then it connects immediately to the free wifi that we use here at our rv park. My hubby's computer never has a problem. I am a relative beginner and I don't understand this.

    Classic issue with wireless connections and power down.

    First off, I'd open Device Manager, expand the Network adapters, and select the Advanced tab, and see if you can turn off any power saving features. Next, I'd upgrade to the latest drivers and BIOS for that machine. Finally, I'd upgrade to SP3 as well.
