internet connection issue

I have a new computer and am having an unusual connection problem. I connect through an ethernet cable and an intellinet modem. I have a dsl connection through a local and small provider in rural NC and SC. I try in general to boot up the computer in the morning and leave on all day. Since it is in a bedroom I shut down at night.

Recently we have been having many thunderstorms and even power outages, so I have been cutting off the power completely including pulling the plug out of the outlet and turning off the surge protector.

When I shut down in normal fashion I am able to connect when I open the computer. If the power has been completely cut the connection cannot be made and I have to reset my disconnecting the intellinet cable and power connection.

Does anyone know why this is happening? It has not happened to me before.
