Windows 10: 2 different laptops very slow to re-connect to wifi after sleep.

    2 different laptops very slow to re-connect to wifi after sleep.

    Sometime in 2017 I noticed that my Dell Inspiron 3451 was not properly connecting to my access point after coming out of sleep. Most of the time it would auto reconnect but could take a minute or two to do it. My daughter reported a similar situation on her asus laptop at college.

    I went in and made sure the wireless adapter power settings were not set to power down the wifi connection.

    It's very annoying that when I open the lid, launch a browser and get a screen that says you are not connected to the internet only to have it start to respond a minute or two later.

    I'm check to make sure i'm on latest drivers. Other ideas?

    It is something that has been an annoyance since they made the changes to networking when 8 came out. The only thing that you can do is turn it on or open up the lid, wait a minute and then go online. It tends to happen more with those who are using a Microsoft Live account (email), vs. just a local username.
