I trying to track down a really annoying issue. In the last week, every time I have restored my laptop from it's hibernated state, it is not getting an IP address. I am having to reboot before I get my IP address.
Last week, I seem to have a similar issue but this time the laptop shows it was connecting to my my wifi router but there was DNS / IP address. I wonder if there is anything affecting the wifi service in my area in Nottingham. Indeed, I spotted no less than 3 Virgin Media vans packed down my road, so may be that was just a coincidence.
Now this could be due the latest WIndows 10 update, again this was last week. Any thoughts on how I can resolve this?
Your wifi would not be affected by anything that VM were doing in your street, I know that some laptops especially with the latest version of Windows 10 show this issue. One way to be sure when this happens is to turn the wifi off on the laptop and then back on, that may resolve the issue, I believe that when it wakes from hibernation the wireless card doesn't get reset.
