Hi, I have the TP-Link USB Wireless adapeter (TL-WN722N)
It always reconnects after sleep mode or I have to do it manually and it takes a long time to reconnects all the time, help?


***DO NOT say to uncheck " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option! This DOES NOT work for me and it has no effect whatsoever!***

you could try

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings

change plan settings--then change advanced power settings

particularly look for the wireless adapter settings and put to maximum performance

and the usb suspend setting to disable

dont know if that will fix it but cant hurt to try

When a computer goes to sleep it's in almost the same state as shutdown. This means it will power down almost everything, including your USB wireless dongle. I think it only keeps the keyboard powered up. I would suggest you disable sleep, if you are that concerned about the wireless being disconnected when your computer goes to sleep.

I would prefer a fix, not a workaround for this.

Try this -
go to control panel - network and internet - manage wireless

networks
delete all networks that have been created
click Profile types on the menu bar just above (Add, Adapter

properties etc)
and make sure it is set to - use all user profiles only
click Add (on the menu bar) then select manually create a network

profile
then manually enter SSID encryption type and your security key
make sure you are connected to the internet then enter sleep mode
wake up computer and internet should still be connected.

I've had this problem with 3 separate computers all running 64 bit windows 7.
I have always managed to cure it by doing one of the following
1 - the method in the above post (delete networks and manually create a new one
2 - disable wake up password
3 - create a new standard account and use that
4 - tick the connect when ssid not broadcasting in network properties

one or a mixture of the above has always solved this problem for me.
