    Hi there

    I have a dell Inspiron 6400, and just recently when coming out of sleep mode there is no connection available to the internet.

    Windows network system reports that a reset of the wireless adapter may fix the problem (Hardware reset). Usually I end up doing a complete reboot to reset the adapter in the laptop. (Annoying)

    Is there any way of getting vista to stop switching off the adapter when in sleep mode. It didn't use to do this, and I was wondering if an automatic update has caused this, or if it's a hardware problem.

    Vista Business Edition, SP1, Dell Inspiron 6400 with Intel(R) Pro/Wireless 3945ABG Network adapter

    Yep....go to Device Manager and rt. click on the wireless adapter, select properties. In the Properties window select the Power Management tab and uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device". Click on OK and restart the computer.
