Windows 7: Wireless ceases to work after power restart

Wireless ceases to work after power restart

hey guys, i have this problem where the wireless wont work after the power has been turned off and then back on. they use a power box for the main pc, modem and router and turn it off before they go to sleep to save on electricity costs. usually, my fix is to unplug the router, turn the modem off.. turn it back on and the router back on. from time to time the wireless will work after the power has been turned back on, but its either very slow or the connection goes in and out. i'm sick of having to reset everything before i want to use my laptop.
anyone got any ideas?

Yes, my advice would be to get the modem and router OFF the power box (is that a power strip?). The modem needs to be powered on first and allowed to sync up, then the router should be powered on, in that order. The money being saved by turning off the modem and router is probably pennies per month.

yeah... that's what i thought. it's similar to a power strip. its a box. i'm not sure if its a surge protector or what.

Maybe it's a backup power supply that has a battery in it? Either way, I'd leave the modem & router on or leave the backup power supply on.
