i dont think its the router, my computer did this when i was hooked straight to a cable modem, exactly the same symptoms. i think its windows but thats my opinion. i kno not much help but i just forgot about it and just leave my pc on all the time. its better than turning it on and off. when does a light bulb almost always go out, when u turn it on. same as a pc imo. u can try typing ipconfig/renew at the command prompt and thatll give a new ip address and see if that fixes it when u come out of standby/hiber or search msn, they mite have a fix for it.
