Re: My internet will not work after a power outage
I know this is an old thread but it popped up when I was researching this issue, so I thought I'd let you know how I got it fixed.
I had the exact same problem and I tried automatically updating my network card driver, which didn't help. However, when I asked to manually choose drivers from my computer, a newer driver than the one which was automatically installed appeared. This one worked, and the problem was solved.
The question still remains though, why is the driver rolled back to an older version when power shuts down, and why doesn't the automatic updater choose the newest driver? /shrug
