I am in a house with 2 roommates. We all share a wireless cable internet. The router is all the way across the house, but is re-transmitted through my roommates "extender" So my connection is usually pretty fast.

My problem is, that when I restart, or after I wake up in the morning, I find that my internet does not work. This doesnt happen everytime, I'de say 3 out of 5 times.

When this happens I will either switch between the raw signal and the re-router, or restart. Sometimes it works, sometimes I do nothing, and then in a matter of say 5 or 10 minutes my internet magically works.

I dont have a single clue what could be the cause of this.

Are you hibernating the PC, or do you have the power settings such that the wireless network adapter is being shut down when the PC is idle for a long period?

Possibly, time will tell.

But hibernating and/or standby often kills network connections
