I have something strange going on and I am not sure how to troubleshoot/fix it.

If I am initially connected to the LAN cable I have a connection. But if I disconnect the cable and reconnect it won't connect to the LAN. It doesn't even see the LAN. I have to reboot the box with the cable connected for it to see it again. This is kind of a pain in the butt because I am constantly moving my laptop between workstations connecting and reconnecting from different LAN cables.

What gives and what info do I need to provide the forum gurus to help me out. Thanks as always.
