wake from sleep mode with no internet connection

after returning from sleep mode there is no internet connection.  I must restart to get connection. 

If I wake from sleep mode within 5-15 minutes there is still internet connection but 45 min no internet connection.

clean Windows 7 install.  Was using XP and worked fine.

If I should have asked elsewhere please let me know where to go.

Thanks to all that offer help on the MS forums!!!
