I have an MSI Laptop with an Atheros AR9285 wireless card and a D-Link DGL-4500 wireless router.

I am having a problem with this combination. The issue is that shutting down the laptop causes the router to reboot with Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 installed. Happens with either 32 bit version or 64 bit version. I also installed Fedora Core 13 to see it did the same thing. The same problem shutting down the laptop with wireless connected causes the router to reboot.

I have had this combination for sometime and Windows XP or Windows 7 does not cause this to happen. It also never occurred with Ubuntu 10.04.

I realize this is not a major issue as I can disconnect wireless and then shutdown to avoid the issue. Be it bugs me, Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

I have reset and reconfigured the router and it makes no difference.
