For awhile now I've been having an issue with my laptop connecting to the Internet. What happens is that when I power up my laptop and login, it doesn't connect to the Internet immediately. I have it set to automatically connect to the Internet. My wireless connection does appear when I click on the lower right icon that shows the wireless connection list of wireless networks near you.

 

The only way that it will connect properly to the Internet is when I unplug my wireless router for 15 to 30 seconds and then plug the power back in to go through the process. Once I check the wireless icon, it finally does connect to the Internet. I hate having to keep on doing this because usually I have to go down steps in order to get to the router. Yet, when I connect to the Internet with my other laptop, it connects immediately to the Internet without having to do anything with the router. It puzzles me to why this is happening. Any possible solutions to this problem?

Please post the computer and router model/brand next time. Try clearing the network profile of your wireless SSID found on network and sharing center - manage wireless network and then manually connect again. Check your power options and make sure it is not using any power saving features. Try reinstalling the network driver and more likely an updated version. Sometimes checking the router's wireless settings would also help. By the way, Welcome to BC community. :welcome:

Okay, I'll give it a try.
