I've posted about this before but the problem continues. I have an HP running Windows 7. I've had this a few months and this problem began with this new computer. I have an Apple Airport Express router.

 

When the computer sleeps or restarts, not every single time, but more often than not, I have to unplug the router and plug it back in and then manually reconnect.

 

The last time I posted about this I was advised to tick an option that told the computer to not disconnect to save power. (Sorry I don't recall the exact details.) I did so but the problem continues.

 

 

Any ideas on ways around this?

 

Thanks.

The "click" was on the power options tab of the network interface's properties.  You disable the power management so it doesn't put the nic to sleep.

 

But that would not require you rebooting the router.  That is more of an indication the router is the problem.

 

Is this wired or a wireless connection having the problem?

If you connect wired to the router do you have the problem?

Is the setting for power monitoring set to disabled?
