I have a wired local Ethernet printer connected to a computer with windows 7 Ultimate x64. If the printer is turned off when I restart the computer the printer is no longer available (not in focus). To make the printer available I can do one of two things: restart the computer with the printer on or run the printer troubleshooter (I think it restarts the local adapter connection?). Is there a setting that will make the computer recognize the connection automatically when the printer is turned on? This computer is also connected to a wireless network through another Ethernet adapter.
Thanks for the help,
