I ugraded from an SMC Router to a Netgear WNR854T Router. I could not access my network or internet with the SMC card adapter in my laptop so I bought a Netgear WN511T card adapter. I can now connect to my network and internet. When I close the lid on the laptop it goes into standby. When I open the lid the laptop resumes but I can't connect to the network or internet. If I open Network Connections and disable the card and then enable it, I can connect again. Also if I restart the laptop I can connect again. This was not necessary with the SMC Router and card adapter. I have XP Prof on the desktop that the Router is connected to and XP Home on the laptop. I talked to the Tech Support folks at Netgear, but they were unable to help. I would appreciate any suggestions.
