I am running three networked computers. My main machine is running Windows 7 RC, my secondary runs XP, and my wireless laptop runs Vista. When I boot all three in the morning, they all access the NETWORK without problem, but at least 80% of the time, the Windows 7 machine does NOT achieve INTERNET connection (cable), although the other two ALWAYS do. It can take anywhere from 2 to 6 or 7 reboots to get connected, and once it is, all runs fine. I am using a Linksys router and megabit adapters in both of the desktop machines. I have tried startup delay programs without success. I have tried disabling and enabling the NIC - nothing. A friend with a somewhat similar system reports that he has much the same problem. Please tell me that there is a simple answer!
