    after my laptop goes to sleep, i cant reconnect to the wireless network
    unless i restart the machine. coming out of hiberation - the wireless zero
    config process stops and has to be manually restarted. even after that,
    attempts to reconnect to my access point seem successful (the wifi panel
    shows connectivity) but there really isn't a working connection

    any thoughts on how i can debug this. i've had the same problem on a compaq
    2510 p and a sony vaio. so am thinking this is a windows config problem. i
    wish i could use the intel wifi manager, but for corporate reasons am limited
    to using the windows wifi manager

  2. Some computers BIOS may have sleep mode turned off. If they are Vista, you
    may check this search result.

    Corporate laptops => your IT could install some
    so called "security" software that interferes with WZC - ask them.
    If you are the IT, contact Sony or HP, or
    vendors of the "security" stuff.
