Wireless connection lost on sleep


I've got an old Compaq Armada 500 that I've got Debian linux running on. I'm using a 3Com wireless card that is based on the Atheros chipset. I did everything necessary to get the laptop to talk to my wirelss network but after it goes to sleep and then wakes up I lose my wireless connection and am unable to get it back without a reboot.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might be going on?

I had the same problem. In my case, I fixed it by modifying the resume order of /etc/acpi/resume.d/?? My wireless configuration uses WPA, which I figured may be part of the problem, so running the file later in the resume process fixed the problem. I changed my file from /etc/acpi/resume.d/ to /etc/acpi/resume.d/ (after the file).

Let me know if that helped.
