x220t wifi network adapter often needs reset after sleep?

2013-01-22, 5:12 AM

Hi all. Had this problem on my previous Thinkpad too, an x120. Often, when I put the x220t to sleep by closing the lid it will not reconnect to wifi when I reopen it. The icon stays greyed out. I find the fastest way to resolve the problem is to right click and run the troubleshooter, which resets the wifi network adapter and all then is well. Device Manager says its an Intel Centrino R Advanced N 6205 and driver is up to date. Any ideas? Running clean install (not an upgrade) of Win 8.

Thanks. Both of those are already up to date. I am now posting on the larger thread about this issue, so feel free to close or delete this thread if you can. I don't seem to have any option to delete my first post. Thx Nick
