Where do your systems get their IP addresses? Is is possible the HP
lures the Dell into forming an "ad-hoc" network with "Automatic
Private Addresses" (169.254...) when it wakes up? So they can see each
other but not the internet? And power cycling the router causes both
machines to see a new network connection and request new DHCP
addresses that do see the internet? Check the network connection
"status" on both machines in each state.
