Perhaps try to stop and restart the networking device? That sounds odd since when you "go from Windows to Linux", on a dual-boot machine for example, you shut the pc down and then boot it again (restart). So what helps is that you need to unplug the pc, so to me it sounds like something gets "jammed" (reserved or something), and it's not released until all the currents are stopped (unplug the computer).

Have you tried to unplug different kinds of cables, to see which one causes the problem? Is it the power cable, or does it help to remove the network cable only? Could you test if it works for wireless or not?
