Under both Vista Enterprise and Windows 7 Enterprise, I can connect to a 802.11n network only if the computer has not slept or hibernated. If the computer sleeps or hibernates, I can no longer connect to a 802.11n network until I reboot. However, I can still access 802.11b/g just fine after sleeping.
Is this an Intel 5100 AGN issue or a driver issue.
One fix was to disable "Power Savings" in device manager for the adapter, but that seems to make the system want to blue screen from time to time.
Not sure if this is a Hardware issue, Intel driver issue or a Windows issue. Perhaps someone could post a good solution, driver version or hotfix.

My T510 has a similar issue where it cannot connect to certain networks after a sleep or hibernate cycle. Currently my 'workaround' is to open 'View Network Connections' under control panel, right click on the AGN adapter, and choose 'disable' then re-'enable' it. Then it will connect fine. I know this is a workaround, but it does indicate that a revised driver should be able to fix the issue.
