I asked that question already, but the OP did not tell what happens then.

I didn't get to check the info on the MAC adresses yet, but I can't bypass the router, it's fed by coax from my ONT (it's FIOS) it's an Actiontec MI424WR.

Ok, problem solved! I changed the port forwarding settings/ DHCP settings in the router and that seems to solve the problem. Only thing is that you still must wait for at least 5-10 minutes for the PC to boot. Once it's up, it's 100%
Who knows....

Well, I changed the setting that allowed port forwarding, to make it not port forwarding...let's see if I can explain.... when I previously went into the router, it showed all my PC's and their settings. Each PC showed a static IP, and somehow seemed to apply a set IP to each machine. It showed the problem machine with the same IP no matter if I switched ports on the router, rebooted all the machines differently, or without regard to anything I could do. So I went in to enable DHCP and also remove the port foreward from that computer.
Actually its confusing to me but I can send you a screenshot of the settings id you still have not solved it...
