Have had similar problems on a similar set up. Sometimes it is possible to "repair" the connection. (R click on the wireless icon and then click repair). Other times it takes a cold boot, like you say.
Never have figured out what is going on.

OK, thanks for that and real interesting - a "repair" fixed it just now when I booted from an earlier hibernate. I guess it went and grabbed a new IP addy from the DHCP pool.
I don't have a "lease-time" set in the DHCP server, I always thought they would last indefinitely if that were the case. Maybe they time out if not in use?
I'll try a static IP addy on the PC Card and report back in a few days.

I have the same exact problem... Sony Vaio, Linksys G wireless card and router.
The quickest way for me to fix it is by disabling the connection, then enabling. Pain in the a. I'd love to hear if someone knows the way to fix this.

There was this MS KB article I remember from when I had this problem: "Wireless Connection Unavailable" Message After Computer Resumes from Standby [support.microsoft.com]

Thanks Bill, although that article seems to be related to USB networking devices?
I'll try the other trick - disable and then enable.
Setting it up with a static IP made no difference whatsoever.

I have the problem occuring quite often from hibernation but rarely from standby.
