I recently got a new modem/router hybrid, and for some reason it doesn't always want to work.  

It's a D-Link modem/router with Verizon DSL.  My computer is Windows 7 Professional.


Whenever I first turn my computer on in the morning, my router/modem will not connect.  I have to turn my router/modem off, and then back on for it to connect.  

If I connect another device in another room (say... 20 feet away), it'll also disconnect.  

I have a wired (ethernet) connection to my computer, and a wireless connection to anything else.  Most of the rest of the time, it works fine.  But if I hook a device up in another room it will often disconnect me.  I can be in this room on multiple devices, and it's fine.  But for some reason connecting it in the other room turns it off.

Anything I should look into that might be causing this?

It would help more if you provided the dlink router model so we can look up possible issues with it.  It may also help to be sure your router has any updated firmware
