My mom uses Windows Vista laptop and her problem is that most of the time, she loses connection after coming from sleep/hybernate, and sometimes doesn't get it at all from a cold boot. Our solution has always been to unplug and replug the modem & router (we use a surge protector so it's a simple switch to turn off both) and she gets back her connection.
I've talked with Time Warner for some general troubleshooting and the solution they offered was the one where you uncheck the box that makes the wifi device turn off when in power-saving mode. It was working for a while and then the problem persists from time to time.
Are there any other setting in Vista that may have something to do with losing the connection after coming from power-save mode? Thanks.
