    I have a computer that has been working fine for the last year, but recently I've been having trouble connecting to my network.

    My OS is Vista 32bit.
    My router is a Versa link 327w.
    My Network card is a Netgear WG311v3 (pci)

    The drivers for the network card and router are up to date.

    When I put my computer into sleep mode when it wakes up it says connected but I can't get on the internet, or access my local network, even though the settings are to automatically connect. Sometimes when I do try to connect (15-20%), it will say no networks found, and the only way I can get online is to reset my computer. Also, I'll get disconnected randomly, but that is very uncommon. My signal strength is 80%, and no other computers have this problem, so I'm going to assume its my network card, and ideas to try to fix this problem. If not, I'll just buy another card, but I would rather not if I don't have to. Thanks.
