    Must reboot router to get networking

    I have a simple wired network behind a router. One of the computers will not have any network access unless I reboot the router. After that, it connects fine all by itself. My other computers don't have any trouble getting online. Doing a networking restart doesn't bring it up. "sudo dhclient eth0" doesn't bring it up. I use wicd on all my machines but it doesn't solve my problem.

    My configs can't be that bad since everything works perfectly after rebooting the router, so I'm at a loss... Running "lshw -C Network" gives me:

    Code:

    This is a stretch but maybe your nic is hibernating? or it could be going bad.

    Do all the machines connect to the router, or is there a hub/switch behind the router?

    All machines plug right into the router. I tried plugging them into different ports on the router, but same story.
