    can anyone help me

    ive owned two wireless usb devices which have both disconnect when the computer is either put into sleep mode, or restarted. when ive come out of sleep mode, in the taskbar the message i get is "Local Only" and no internet access is received.

    this doesnt happen all the time, but happens sometimes. and i must manually disconnect and reconnect to get the device working.

    im on vista sp1 premium, wireless adapter is the edimax EW-7711UTn

    That's not uncommon. About all you can do is make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter or try another adapter. Oh, and be glad that it doesn't happen all the time, as is sometimes the case.
