What kind of wireless device are you using, and how long do you wait for it do come back after it wakes up?

I've tried waiting 6 minutes. And it didn't come back. I had to completely restart my computer. This is a Gateway MX8734, so it would be a.. I can't find it!

Device Manager reports it is a "Realtek RTL8187 802.11b/g 54mbps USB 2.0 Adapter"
I DOUBT that! It is built INTO my laptop! :thumbsup: I'm sad. This is annoying.

Did you down grade from vista to windows XP?

And does device manager only have one network adapter listed or are there more?

Yes, I did downgrade.

These are the network adapters listed (x means disabled):
"1394 Net Adapter"
x"Ethernet Controller"
"Realtek RTL8187 802.11b/g 54mbps USB 2.0 Adapter"

Ethernet is disabled because I can't find the driver for it :\

In unknown devices, the following appears:
"LG USB CDMA Modem"
"Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus"
"SM Bus Controller"

Anything bad in there?

OK everything is bad.

Let me know what computer make & model you have and I will let you know if you have a chance to run XP on that system.
