    I have 2 wireless networks at work.
    When I put the sp3 into standby/sleep mode and then resuming .i can no longer print to any printers.
    I need to reboot to then access tge printers on the network .
    I have tried to fix the IP adress but it wont let me access advanced settings on the network card to be able to do this ? Has anyone else has this problem ?

    Can you set the printers up with fixed IP addresses? I normally find this is the cause of WiFi printers disappearing.

    I'm sure the network printers aren't Wi-Fi printers. It sounds like you're just losing your Wi-Fi connection to the network and by rebooting, you get connected back up to the network. Although I haven't had the problem, a lot of people have had Wi-Fi problems after their computer goes to sleep. When you lose printer connectivity, I would check to see if you've also lost connectivity to your companies network drives, assuming you have some where you work.
