So I have an Acer Aspire, running Vista. Anyways, when I plug the ethernet cable into my laptop from the wall, I don't receive any connection. I have to restart my computer, and THEN the internet will work. What really bugs me is that if I close the laptop lid, and it standbys...if I reopen the lid then the internet won't work AGAIN.
When the internet does work, the computer says LAN enabled, but for some reason my computer loves the WLAN before all, but not sure if that makes any difference.
This has also been happening to two other guys across the hall from me, who also run Vista. What is the problem? I thought that plugging the cable in is basically a plug & play deal. Grr.
