Hi :) when I first turn my laptop on, I can connect to the internet and browse as normal. However if I send the laptop to sleep by just shutting it, on reopening I cannot browse the internet. Whilst the wifi is described as 'connected' with an excellent signal strength, no web pages will open and nothing that needs a connection will work. I have to restart the laptop to make it work. This is a brand new Acer Aspire and I'm using windows 8.

How are you connecting to the internet? Via WiFi? Is the access-point you are connected to when you sleep the system the same as when you wake it up? Also, what operating system are you using - Windows XP, Windows 7, Linux, other?
