I am frustrated with this pesky problem. Whenever I reawaken my laptop after it falls asleep or the lid has been closed I completely lose my wifi connection. While out of connection, the wifi symbol appears gray. I am able to click into my wifi settings, find my network (which has full bars) and reconnect this way. Please help, my fiancé and I are frustrated. Thanks is advance! Oh, and if it is not apparent enough already, I am completely clueless with wifi router settings and whatnot. So I may need to ask a few followup questions.
