I have two computers that connect to a Linksys router. I unplug the power supply to the router when I am finished using the computers at night. When I start both computers in the morning and power the router both computers sync up fine. I occasionally have a problem with one particular computer syncing up if it is the only computer turned on. Sometimes the connection is established and sometimes it is not. If I unplug the router and wait several minutes, the computer will sometimes make a connection when the router is powered up again. Sometimes it takes several tries to get the connection established. I also learned that if the connection is not established it may help to repair the connection via Windows, even though it fails, before going through the process of repowering the router again. If anyone knows what may be causing this problem I'd appreciate any suggestions. My windows software (XP) is up to date, so I'm assuming it is probably the NIC. Also, this problem has not always occurred but started several months ago. Thanks.
