Standby, wireless and nuisance warnings.

    An annoyance I find with wireless networking is that if the computer is put
    into standby, on resume it will take a few seconds for the WLAN to
    re-establish itself.

    That shouldn't be an issue , except that the timeout on some network
    connections seems to be far shorter, in the order of a fraction of a second.

    The effect is a machine-gun series of popups, warning of a failed LAN
    connection, from any Explorer windows open on mapped drives or other network
    resources. After which all such windows have to be re-navigated back to the
    proper location.

    Any suggestions for a way to stop this?

    In general that is the nature of the "beast" every thing Wireless is slower.
    However you can get it fatter moving by taking the Wireless card out of the
    saving Mode. I.e. configure the Wireless card Not to save Power.

    I don't think that will make any difference, AFAIK there is no way of keeping
    the WLAN card powered whilst the rest of the computer is in standby.

    The basic problem is that the timeouts on these warnings are too short to
    allow the WLAN to reconnect, but I don't know what determines them.
