Hi,
When a laptop shutdown it closes all processes and drivers including the wireless driver in your case and then closes the power input which makes the computer shutdown.

And when a laptop goes to sleep is closes and saves all processes and then temporarily closes the power input to some parts of the computer.So that it can boot up again after you press the power button.

So i think its normal that your wireless connection closes when you go to sleep or shutdown your laptop.

But the part where your wireless connection can't connect.

You should update your wireless card driver and make sure that you close your wireless connection before putting the computer to sleep, mainly i don't think that this problem exist in all Acer Laptops i also have an Acer 7520 and have never experienced this problem myself but have heard of it.You shoud definiatly try closing down your wireless connection before putting the laptop to sleep

Please Rate, Thanks

Wireless disconnect in sleep mode?


I think that is normal to conserve energy. There are times when it will take the network connections down to conserve energy.

If it is a problem you can always increase the time on the sleep mode or set it to NEVER.

Incase Open networks are configured for MAC authentication(MAC binding) then you might not be able to connect to those networks. Even though Network is Open (Unsecured), if ACL (Access Control List) is enabled on the network then only those computers can connect whose MAC address is configured for that Network, its another Security feature on Routers.

Try connecting to some network which your are sure are Open (Unsecured)

How do i connect my dsixl to the internet


Hi,
This is just a general guide ...

1) locate your cable modem connection on your notebook and open up its properties

2) in the advanced tab you should see the Internet Connection Sharing - click on Allow and choose Wireless Network Connection

3) Go back to Wireless Network COnnection, open up its properties

4) In the Advance tab, choose Computer-to-Computer (ad hoc)

5) UN-check the Automatically Connect to non-preferred Networks


Try that first with your built in Wireless Connection of the the notebook. For the USB stick, you should not have to change it to AP mode.

If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.

Intel 82562V-2 10/100 ethernet adapter does not turn back on from vista sleep mode


I have the same network card.
Never had this problem with Vista (32 bit) but recently switched to Win7 (64 bit) and had the same problem as you.
I solved by going under Control Panel->hardware->network card properties->power save and unchecking "Allow pc to switch off the device to save power"

Losing ip address after skeep mode windows vista


I have a dlink product and the first thing I noticed about it was it was extremely unpredictable until I finally got it to a location where there was plenty of free moving air, and it's quiescent operating temperature could come down about ten or so degrees F. But it was not a problem that timed out with anything the PC was doing. An easy way to find out may be next time it happens, find a way to cool the innerds, (I sucked cool air through it and it would just start working again) If you blow, it may get moisture and warmer air in it. Who knows. What do you have to lose... unless a neighbor sees this activity thru a window!!!
