Default no connect after wakeup from sleep

I usually leave my laptop PC on sleep when at home. Sometimes when i wake it up then plug in the wired ethernet cord it won't connect to the internet. Remove and plug-in of the ethernet cord maybe a few times sometimes works. Not always. If i restart it will work. Any suggestions.

Go into your power setting and disable the power down on sleep mode for your NIC.

Goto your control panel, select the "Network and Sharing" icon, select the "Change Adapter settings" then select the "Local Area Connection" your using from the list, then select the "Change Settings of This Connection" from the top of the page.

Next select the "Configure" tab at the top, then the "Power Management" tab, this will allow you to select if the computer can shut down the NIC when it goes to sleep.

Your original post isn't clear.
Is the wired ethernet cable always connected? Or is it removed at end of day?

I left power options alone because it only has 2 options with the check box.
its on the first option.
1. allow this computer to turn off this device to save power
2. allow this device to wake up the computer

Warning: if this is a laptop and run it on battery power the network adapter to wake the computer could drain the battery more quickly.
It might also cause the laptop to become very hot if it wakes up while in a case.
number 2 is out. thats a fire risk from the cheap defective batteries.
im open for other suggestions for win7 HomePremium laptop.

You might try attaching the ethernet cord before you wake the PC back up.

Or... remove the battery (for safety) and use AC power.
(And don't place it in a case powered on when not in use with or without a battery installed)

Just remove the check marks from the choices, this disables them, and the last one would only be used if the computer was part of a LAN system and it had important info on it that other computers may need.
