My Win 7 32 bit laptop has started doing something weird. I will be using it and all the sudden will lose internet connectivity. It seems that the computer no longer thinks I have my wireless turned on. It is turned on. Going through the troubleshooting steps always results in being told to turn my wireless on. I have made sure that the wireless driver is up to date and have looked online for some solutions but nothing seems to match. A couple of important things: 1. It only happens when I am on VPN. No problems when not on VPN. 2. Sometimes it happens in 5 minutes and sometimes 4 hours or more. 3. Rebooting the laptop is the only way to regain connectivity. I am using a new VPN and this problem has started since the new VPN was installed. This may or may not be significant because I had not used the old VPN much and I didn't have this problem until at least a month into the new VPN. Although there has to be a connection since it only happens while using VPN. Any suggestions? Reps will be passed out freely as long as I have them. Our in-house help desk is a nightmare and I would rather solve this without their involvement. They'll probably suggest that I'm using a font in Word that is causing it. Getting a MAC is out of the question. It's all company issued stuff.
