belkin N300 wireless N router not connecting to acer ispire

Specs: Windows 8.1
My Belkin Router does not connect automatically to my Acer AspireE1-531 every time I boot up.
I need to disconnect/ connect the router power (15 sec.) and it connects every time. The connection always establishes but the need to attend to the router is a nuisance

Possibly do a reset routine on the Belkin and then start again?

Personally I prefer static ip addresses even on a home lan; reserve an ip to a given MAC address for each device on the lan.

It helps to understand the OSI model when troubleshooting

If it requires a reboot of the router to establish a connection, assigning a static ip [layer3] has nothing to do with a layer 1 [physical connection] issue.

The ONLY reason to assign a static ip when troubleshooting is when the dhcp server is suspect.

Thommo05 do you have other wifi devices connecting to this Belkin router?
Do they exhibit the same behavior or do they connect OK?

The question we are looking to answer is the problem with the router or the acer wifi

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Yes we have other devices that exhibit the same problem. An IPAD that also does not connect without intervention. They both retain the connection once established
