XP loses wireless connection after standby or hibernate (WPC54GX4)

I am currently running Win XP SP3 on a Toshiba Satellite a15-s129 laptop.  I have a Linksys wireless router (WRT54GX2 ver 2) connected to an HP a350n desktop.  I have a Linksys wireless adapter (WPC54GX4) connected to my Toshiba laptop.  On my laptop, whenever I come out of standby or hibernate mode, my laptop will not resume my wireless connection via the WPC54GX4.  I initially fixed this problem months ago when I set the configuration to allow windows to manage my wireless network.  However, I can no longer seem to find this option and I'm at the end of my rope.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Try these steps first uninstall the adapter and then reiinstall the adapter using the following steps. I assume you are using windows XP operating System..
Uninstall the drivers for the Adapter from start >> All programs ....
>> Insert the Setup CD in the cd drive>> Click on Exit when the
Linksys welcome screen appears>>Click on start. Unplug & replug adapter ...>> There should be a "" Found New Hardware Wizard ""
that pops up on your screen>> Click on “Install software
automatically “, and then click on next. Once the installation is
complete>> Right click on the wireless network connection icon in the
system tray besides the clock >>Click on view wireless networks and
then connect to your network name.
