    Intel dp55wb NIC problems after waking from Windows sleep mode (win7 64-bit)


      I have the intel dp55wb motherboard with integrated NIC and am expericing a problem in Windows 7 64-bit.  When the computer is idle and goes into power saving sleep mode, I experience a network problem upon waking the computer.  The network connection that was previously working just fine before entering sleep mode will now be dead after waking Windows.  I have to disable the NIC or shutdown and restart Windows in order for it to start working again.  I have updated my BIOS to the most recent version which was released in early January 2010 and the problem persists.  The only work-around I have found is just to disable power saver/sleep mode in the Windows 7 power settings in the control panel.
