after a recent storm, my computer comes on with the local connection only. i need to manually connect to broadband each time. i have skype and skype recorder which needs my connection immediately.
of course, without broadband connection immediately, my skype recorder will not work.
also, it's a pain to have to do this manually.
i've done a system restore, turned off modem, unplugged modem for 30 seconds, hard boot, etc. nothing works.
#1 What is the brand and model of your modem?
#2 What is the brand and model of your router?
