Wifi not automatically connecting after sleep/hibernate.

    My Toshiba L450D--11V laptop (Windows 7 Premium 64bit) got the mother of
    all viruses over the weekend, and nearly all the authorities I consulted
    on it said it was a particularly bad one, and advised to perform a
    factory settings recovery procedure from the recovery partition, which I
    promptly did.

    Everything is now back to normal...except for one thing - when my laptop
    resumes from sleep or hibernation, my Wifi no longer automatically
    connects.....despite my ticking the 'connect automatically' box, and
    ticking the two other boxes in the properties of my wifi settings that
    say 'connect even if SSID is not being broadcast' (or words to that
    effect), and a second box in that bit that also instructs it to connect
    automatically, and my password is stored fine too. I currently have to
    manually connect each time the system resumes, which is a nightmare
    (memories of dial-up). Could anyone possibly help me to put this right,
    please, as it used to always connect straight away. I've tried updating
    the driver....it was already up to date.

    Many thanks.

  2. Hi
    Some problematic Wireless cards do not reconnected because of issues in
    their drivers.
    Most do. However you have to make sure that it configured to connect auto to
    a proffered SSID, your proffered list is clean and contain only your
    preferred SSID, and the SSID has to be Broadcasting.

    My SSID surely must be broadcasting fine, as the other PC in the house,
    as well as my Playstation 3, both connect fine...and
    instantly/automatically. And it's the same Wifi card *and* driver that
    worked perfectly well in this very laptop before I reverted back to the
    original factory state. I'm suspecting that the Toshiba recovery image
    doesn't contain some little tweaks that they must make to them before

    I'm just confused as to which settings I now have to configure, as to me
    it looks like the same settings as before - although I suspect I might
    have missed something...obvious or otherwise.

    Thanks for the reply.
