I'm using Windows 8.1 (didn't have Windows 8) and I'm experiencing a very frustrating issue.
Whenever I put the computer into standby (the majority of the time I use it), when it wakes back up, the wifi connection is limited. The only way that I can then get the wifi connection to work is to uninstall the network device through device manager, scan for changes, then enter the network password again.
Apart from being a hassle, every time I do this, I lose my configured settings for the connection - I use a DNS proxy so I have to reconfigure all my IP's etc.
I have scanned across the internet, but I'm completely stumped. I've tried all the usual things I can think of (e.g updating drivers, disabling power management for the network adapter), but nothing works.
This is a HP CQ57 and the adapter is a Realtek RTL8188CE adaptor.
Any help to avoid me ripping my hair out would be appreciated!
