HP IQ506 losses wireless connection woken from sleep mode

I have a D-Link wireless router that I've been using for years. My new HP IQ506 and new HP C4599 wireless printer work fine until I put the PC to sleep. When I awaken the computer I loose internet connectivity. Connectivity can be reestablished by restarting the machine but this awkward. Hp had me go into the device manaager, Network adapters, 802.11 wireless lan card, power management tab. The first technician had me disallow letting the computer shut down the device to save power. This did nothing. The second technician had me enable the computer to turn off device. This made no sense and sure enough, the computer shut down the card even if it was already up. I 've reset it back to disallow the computer to turn off the card but I'm right back to where I started. Is there a way to reactivate the card after sleep mode shuts it down without restarting the computer. HP support tells me this isn't but given the conflicting advice I've gotten from them I'm not at all sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well, my solution has worked six consecutive times so MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, this is the final fix. At any rate I went into the Device manager, network adaptor card, 802.11 wireless card and then the advanced tab. Here I found the the Carrier Detect disabled so I enabled it. I also went to the power saving mode on the same property list and set the value to CAM (Constantly Awake). As mentioned, I have put the machine to sleep six times since the change and all six time it reawakens with the network card enabled. You have to wait a about a minute once the system is back up for it to connect to the internet but it does so flawlessly. By the way, before I went to the Adavanced tab I hit the tab called General and it told me "The device is working properly". I'm not sure what this mean when in fact it could not see the network. I just ignored it.

I don't know if my making these setting changes will affect anything else but if you know that they will please notify me. So far, so good.

PS: HP support didn't seem to know anything about this. Neither the PC people or the printer people seemed to know about network issues. I like the machine quite a bit but the support left me cold.

To reset the D-Link back to the default settings -
Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON untilthe LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button.

My IQ506 cannot get out of the SLEEP MODE! I've pressed the SLEEP key and now I cannot get it out. Fan spins, touch screen works but I have just AMBER POWER BUTTON and black screen. What should I do?

If it does not come out of sleep mode after pressing a few keboard keys or moving the mouse then the only other option is to switch the power off at the wall socket, then switch it back on. You may lose any unsaved work.

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

Yes and No.
It will connect to a router using B (11Mbps) or G (54Mbps) mode.
It will not connect to a router using the new N (108Mbps) mode.

The best way is to set your router to "Mixed Mode", so it adjusts to the used network cards.

Unable to get IP coming back from sleep mode

WEP Security is not strong enough and can be comprise within min! Buy a new print server it will make you sleep better and happier! Setup your IP as Stactic especially on the print server it needs to stay the same Log into the router and change the password, and look at your ip range, if your are using zone alarm or any type of firewall the ip range must match.
