Losing ip address after skeep mode windows vista

I have a wireless Compaq laptop with Windows Vista, After sleep mode (or turning off) it loses the IP address, It will connect only to the local wireless network. I have automatically obtain IP/DNS on. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting to the network. The only way I can get it back is to unplug router/reboot modem. I did see other posting regarding sleep mode and Windows Vista problems, but no clear solution. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: 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!!!

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655

The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

Vista keeps losing internet connection

open device manager and  look at network adapters and right click on your device and go to properties and uncheck the power management box that allows pc to put device to sleep. this should resovle your problems since windows id defaulted to put device asleep when idle to save power. hope this helps.

keep the subnetmask it is almost always a default class C address. That subnet mask you are entering technically does not exist. . and make sure IPv4 is on the same subnet ex. ip mask:
