    When ever I close my lid I loose the internet connection and have to restart the whole computer. Is there a setting I am finding?

    you loose the connection because the computer goes to sleep when you close the lid, and as far as i know there's no way of stopping it from doing that unless you download a third party application. As for the having to restart mmmm no idea ::confused:.
    supposedly after you open the lid the computer goes out of sleep and it takes a few seconds for it to recover the wifi signal, if it doesn't it's probably out of range it happens to me a lot, i have to go to the next room where the wifi reception is better and restart the airport and then i can go back to my room without loosing the signal, wired i know :s

    If you want your computer to stay on with the lid shut you can try a program called InsomiaX. Other than that, the computer should NOT be restarting, but instead, waking from sleep.

    Strange, the Internet connection should be back immediately after waking up form sleep.

    I think you might need to tell us more about your computer setup and your network setup before we can really help. :)
