When a start up my Vista PC I find that it does not connect to the web. If I restart the computer it does! Is this a PC problem, a Vista problem or a Contention problem? I live in a village one and a half miles from the local exchange but beyond an area of modern housing with 400+ houses. Ideas please.
Connecting via a modem router which has its own power source and is switched on when I switch on the power to the PC. Both are fed from the same surge protected source. I switch on the power then the PC but I switch on the PC immediately after I have switched on the power. Should I wait for the modem to "do its own thing" before switching on the PC?
