Windows 7: Screen blanks when network cable pulled

my question is

w7 pro 64-bit
Screen blanks when network cable pulled

I'm trying to set up a wifi extender. PC has only one enet port. Can't get extender to pair with router via wifi so I connected to the extender with an enet cable. When the cable is disconnected from the router and connected to the extender the screen goes blank and stays that way until the router is reconnected.

I'm hoping this just a setting/switch somewhere. Thanks!
