Windows 7: Windows every boot need to unplug-replug Ethernet cable for internet

Windows every boot need to unplug-replug Ethernet cable for internet

Regardless of PC, I have 3 win7 pc's. This did not happen until the last few months, but with me dual booting between Linux and Windows, the problem has become evident.

I dual boot linux, and it connects without needing to be unpluged- repluged the ethernet line.

could it be the wireless Netgear router or switch or windows 7?

I use a 5 port gig switch between router and PC's.
WGT-624 v3 (with latest firmware, been using this for years)

TEG - 550g Trendnet switch

Are you given a different IP address from the router on each OS? Might want to make that pc use a static address in your router. Try setting up a DHCP reservation for that machine on it.
