Re: Network not connecting when computer restarted
Hi again, Sorry if my last post seemed a bit rude. I checked the D-Link site
and the router should work with Vista so I think it is some other problem.
Also I found if I turn the pc off via the big red graphics button that looks
like an off button but just puts the computer into what I guess is some sort
of hybernation state, then when I turn it on again the network is OK.
I only have to go through the process I described in my first post if I turn
the pc completely off.
