Ok, so this problem is plaguing me all the time.After I boot my pc from Hibernation my Wifi network is disconnected, though it detects the Wireless network in the system tray I am unable to connect and the only way to connect again is turn the network adapter on & off. I've had this issue for a long time, but I'm tired of having to turn the wireless adapter on & off. Calling all pros, I need a solution...

I have the latest drivers installed for the Wifi card and as for the modem can anyone provide me a link to the firmware update, the one on teracom site seems to be broken.What the difference between sleep & hibernate ? As far as standby is concerned, the laptop remains powered on, for I can see the power light blinking, I want it turn off completely !

Firstly the driver version that you mentioned was already installed on my system, even then I downloaded and installed the driver from Dell USA website and it turns out it does more harm than good. It takes an even longer time to connect after turning the adapter on & off. Will be downloading and installing new drivers from the Dell India website.

Power light blinking doesn't mean the laptop is on Vista Notes, Episode #2: Sleep vs. Hybrid Sleep - Bit-cycling - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

I'm not sure which O.S I selected on the US website, seems the Vista & 7 drivers are of the same size and version number, will redownload and retry !

Wow, wasn't aware of that...thanks.

I have a habit of turning of my lappy completely and disconnecting the power cord, as you know keeping the battery connected to AC mains even when fully charged reduces battery life. Ideally one should charge the battery when its discharged to about 50% (that's what I've heard, and was given a technical reason which was pretty convincing)
