My laptop won't connect to internet after boot up or wake up.

When I log into my laptop or  wake it up from sleep mode, my laptop won't connect to the internet.  It says "not connected, no connections available".  I have to turn off my wireless receiver then turn it back on just to be able to connect.  This problem is starting to become annoying.  I have tried the power manager stuff, the TCP/IPv6 stuff and still no results.  I would greatly appreciate assistance.
