Why does my wireless internet no longer reconnect upon startup?

By in Everyday Computing

Before, after closing and opening my laptop back up again, my internet would automatically reconnect. But ever since I moved my modem and wireless router to another location in the house, it no longer does that. My system tray tells me it’s connected again but it doesn’t really connect back to the internet unless I reset the modem.

Even when it goes on screensaver, I have to reset the modem by unplugging it and plugging it back in after a minute just to get back on the internet, and I don’t have time to wait a minute each time I want to get something to eat or have to check on the kids.

What could I have done to the modem or router while moving them that caused this to happen? How can I fix this?
