Wireless taking long to connect

Specs: Vista Premium, AMD TL-56
My laptop has broadcom built in wireless and I have set my laptop to sleep when I close it. When I open it back up and the computer wakes up it always takes like 2 or 3 minutes to automatically reconnect to my home network. Is there some setting I can change to make this faster? My old laptop with an add-on waireless card only too like 10-15 seconds to reconnect.

How about connect it to wireless network manually? Will connect faster?

Also go to the wireless adapter's manufacturer website to look for latest driver and install it. Also don't forget to install latest Vista patch/update as well, can be Vista bug sometimes.

Mine was doing that as well on my Vista OS installed laptop. I think I figured it out to be Vista's IPv6 tunnel interfaces. I first did an ipconfig and saw all these tunnel interfaces with IPv6 configured on them. I didn't see a need for it so I first went into the wireless network card and unchecked TCP/IP v6 on that interface. That disabled it for the wireless card but not the tunnel interfaces and it didn't fix my problem. So I disabled it all by editing the registry as shown in this link (http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/09/09/disable-and-turn-off-ipv6-support-in-vista/). I rebooted and it now takes 10 to 15 seconds to connect rather than 1 to 2 minutes like before. Hope this helps

UPDATE: This didn't work like I thought it did so I tried one more thing along these lines. I actually when into device manager and disabled the Network adapter called Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-interface. I am not exactly for sure what it does but I read somewhere to disable it. It connects quickly now.
