Everytime I open the "lid" on my laptop, it takes a long time to connect to the PlusNet router. When I am using it at other friends' places, it connects right away to their router. Quite often it takes so long to connect to the PlusNet router that I have to manually connect to it. Why does it not connect automatically and why does it take so loong?
Do you witness the same 'slow connect' problem when you shut down the laptop and then power it on using the on/off power switch ?
Can you provide more info about your laptop such as make/model ? I presume it is running Windows. What version? If the problem only occurs when the laptop is trying to resume from sleep mode, it sounds like a wireless driver issue. An updated driver may fix it.
