Re: Stubborn Laptop Wireless - "No Connections"
said by bearcatnat :My older laptop loses sound after sleep. It also loses sound after shutdown. It it is powered off for long enough (several hours), it is fine. But after a shorter shutdown, it loses sound. I can usually coax the sound into working again by rebooting.
Whenever my laptop boots or comes out of sleep, my wireless icon in the system tray shows "No connections available".
My point. Your problem is likely to be partly a hardware issue. Your wifi card might be slower to start up than other components.
I completely solved my problem by purchasing a newer laptop
