Windows 7: Login Password Issues

Login Password Issues

I've been having a really strange issue.
On occasion, my Windows 7 login password doesn't seem to work. I am very positive it's not me, just not remembering it. I can try hundreds of times, it doesn't work. Then, if I unplug my computer from the wireless router (my computer is wired), restart and try to logon again, then the password I tried one hundered times before, all of the sudden works? Then I plug back into the router and everything is back to normal...until it happens again. This last time, the previous workaround didn't work. I finally got it to work by being unplugged from the network, but having to restart multiple times?
Seems very weird. Help?
