My Windows 10 laptop connects to wireless as quickly as did Windows 7
Win7 was also slow (restarting the connection from scratch, rather than just resuming) compared to Vista, in my experience.
Tonight's build, with improved icons is at https://bitbucket.org/Mr_Tines/scrapbook/downloads/Connectivity.zip

* you just need to unzip it somewhere (no installer); the 3 files -- one .exe and 2 .dll -- inside need to live together.
* It does assume you have .net 4.0 or later installed (but that should come as part of the operating system for Windows 10).
* You'll need to create a shortcut manually to put on the desktop or add to the start menu
or to start automatically
* to stop it, right-click the icon and click "Exit" on the menu
* Overnight hibernation means that the link has to be renegotiated from scratch, but for shorter breaks like an hour or so (maybe up to 6 hours?), I have had it come up immediately, so not quite as good as Vista behaviour -- YMMV
* it takes about 700K memory and negligible CPU
