Network problem with Windows 7 after sleep and after reboot of PC

I have been seeing problems with the Windows 7 64 bit computer not finding the LAN network when waking from sleep. It does eventually after about a minute. I have the LAN connection on the motherboard set to stay powered up
I just had a play using ipconfig /all and these are the results
No LAN detected

The problem appears to be that the adapter is losing the Gateway and the IP4 Address but not the IP6 address
Title changed as I get the same delay when the computer is rebooted - does this point towards a router problem

Re: Network problem with Windows 7 after sleep

To add - and I don't know if it is relevant
I am getting intermittent DNS lookup failures on all the connected devices - one Windows 7 and one XP both wired also a laptop XP wireless but with no indication of any problems with the router or the connection
I tried switching the DNS servers around in the router but it didn't help
Ignore this - I found this in the router log at about the time we had the problem
