    Despite trying various IPCONFIG demands I'm not able to regain wifi
    connection unless I reboot; any other clues to save having to do this
    valued.

    Prelude is I close laptop and leave to charge for half an hour, but do
    not close down via the start button;
    I turn broadband router off.
    Then I switch router back on after laptop's had some juice, and laptop
    see wifi connection, but no internet connection is established on
    laptop.

    I use these commands
    IPCONFIG /CLEAR
    IPCONFIG /RENEW

    IF NO LUCK THEN TRY

    IPCONFIG /REFRESH

    but only fix is to fully reboot.

    Try leaving the router on, broadband routers are designed to be always on.

    I have it happen in sleep mode now and then. I simple disable then
    enable the wireless card (connection). I also have a power on/off
    option for the card, which does the same thing. Much simpler than
    reboot.

    PS I think its "ipconfig /release" not clear

    At least try booting the router and wait until it indicated it has
    established an internet connection before booting the laptop!

    Router is left on whilst laptop lid closed; have changed wireless card
    power settings but still have grief.
