I am running Linux Mint 17.2 on a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop. Since ndiswrapper failed to install the drivers for my internal network card, I am using an external usb netgear WN111 v2 card. It works, but whenever I close and open my laptop lid, wireless won't work, even though it stays connected to the network. why does this happen, and can it be fixed?

Is your networkmanager.conf correct? Thats the first thing that came to my mind...
