I have just set up a new HP computer for our son........we added a Netgear RangeMax dual band router. Everything works fine except for one problem.......he has to start the computer twice before it will let the wireless internet (built in wireless b/g/n card) connect. It's a Windows 7 operating system......fast computer with lot's of memory and so on. I can sit right by the computer and on my Vista Netbook I never have a problem nor do I with my Ipod Touch. Once in awhile if he walks away from the computer he can come back and it has the lost the Internet and he has to restart....but mostly it's after the computer has been shut down over night or several hours. I have tried everything I can think of to fix it.........his other computer is directly wired and no problems but it's Windows XP. His provider is Comcast.
Any Ideas.....since he lives several miles away I can't immediately try any thing.....so would like ideas on what to work on when I go to his house.
My computer is an Hp running vista also with a built in wireless b/g/n card and it works great........it seems to be a Windows 7 problem as far as I can tell.
Also I might mention I had shut down the computer repeatedly like 4 or 5 times and it works fine.......seems to be when left alone for a length of time.
