No internet connection after hibernate or sleep.

Hi group, hope you can help me.  When I bring the computer out of sleep or hibernation, I have no internet connection.

Activating the troubleshooter tells me I have an ethernet cable unpluged, which I haven't of course.

I remember, when using the beta OS of windows 7, I didn't come across this problem.  So now I find myself having to re-boot each time I come out of hibernation or sleep.

Any ideas any one?

Thanks
