I'd be hesitant to say this is a driver issue.

If the problem occurs after going from Windows TO Linux, then the issue is on the windows side or bios side (assuming it's on the local client).

Are you using the latest bios? Are you using the latest Windows drivers?

What device is the system connecting to? (Router? Switch? Gateway?).
What Model device? Does the device have the latest firmware?

Is the OS reboot properly? Or is it a forced-reboot?

Does not seem like an nvidia driver issue to me.......

Well tell me if this logic makes sense...

Driver establishes a connection to the device in Windows.
Windows shutsdown.

Windows does not completely shutdown the card upon system shutdown.
Rebooting into Linux, since the card is not in a 'ready' state, it is unable to connect properly.

To me this leaves 2 areas for problems.
1) Windows driver bug.
2) Network card is not being reset due to some sort of power-management issue.

I'm curious why you think the problem is on the Linux side...

From the sounds of it, if you do a fresh bootup into Linux everything works?
