    Have to reboot to get laptop to connect to internet.


    Getting the limited connectivity problem when waking up my Toshiba laptop running 8.1. Having to reboot it every time I go to use it is getting old. Tried telling it not to shut off the wireless network car when going to sleep but that didn't seem to help.

    Hello,

    Have you tried disabling the Power Management mode from Device Manager of your Wi-Fi adapter? See image attached.

    Yes I have turned that off and it hasn't made any difference.

    You might try either the Windows update Center or the Toshiba support site for the latest drivers for Windows 8.1
