I'm not sure when this started happening - i don't think I changed any network settings, maybe after a windows update? Anyhow, when i wake up my PC i'm unable to reach anything outside the LAN, even via it's IP address. I can ping the router and pull up the router's web page via http://192.168.0.1 I tried getting a new router - same problem. The router is running dd-wrt, but it was happening with the default firmware as well as the latest firmware (asus rt-n16). It's easy enough for me to fix the problem - i disabled the network connection and re-enable it and everything works. But this still a pain since I have my computer set up for Wake on Lan so that I can access it remotely. The NIC is a Realtek PCIe card. Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and how to fix it?
