I have a dell vostro and every time i close the lid it disconnects from the internet and when i open the lid back most of the time i either have to restart or disable then enable the connection to get it to connect again, most times i have to restart. I have tried changing settings to sleep, hibernate, dont turn of the screen when i close the lid etc. But still it disconnects, any ideas?

I wish I could help you with your specific machine but I can only make a general comment about Windows restarting from Standby and Hibernation .. it has aways been problematic.

I just had to reboot my Thinkpad X60 because it wouldn't connect by itself after resuming from standby. It's been working better with each new driver upgrade. I'm now able to resume configuration about five out of six attempts.

Have you gone in the power management settings in the control panel (assuming you're running a Windows machine)?

I had the came problem with my Linux laptop and was able to fix it with these settings, but it's a little different.

I don't know Vista at all so take this with a grain of salt...

There should be some power management options in your control panel that will give you the option to shut down the monitor, shut down the hard drive, put the computer into hiberate, etc. If you try turning some of those things off that may resolve your issue.

Go to the Dell website, using the SVC Tag number from the bottom of the laptop see if there are new drivers for the wireless.

Talk to Dell support if none or that doesn't help.
