Laptop will not connect to wireless automatically after sleep mode
I have a Dell Inspirion M5110. Windows 7, 64 bit.
When ever I open the lid to the laptop it takes 5-10 mins before it will automatically connect to a network. Diagnose this network does not find anything, nor provides any troubleshooting. Typically if I open the network connections center and disable the wireless, let it sit for 30 secs or so, and re-enable, it will finally connect.
I know it's not my router, as the laptop does the same thing at work, and multiple different friends house.
I've confirmed that DHCP is set to automatic connect. I've also checked Device Manager/Network adapters/ and unchecked the box "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
Thank you for the help. I was able to check the first steps. Both on and off battery are set to Max Performance. I restarted the laptop and still had to manually connect to my network.
With the second steps, when I view the properties of my wireless card, I don't find anything that in regards to Transmit Power. I did see "Roaming Tendency" and it's set to moderate, which is the lowest.
