Does it "need" a reboot, or would disabling and re-enabling the connection work? Or perhaps even just renewing the DHCP lease?

If it NEEDS a reboot, i'd suggest it was a driver or hardware issue.

Whats the DHCP lease?

Well assuming your LAN IP's are being assigned by your router, they will most likely be DHCP assigned. You can release your current address and get a new lease from the server by going to the command prompt and typing:

Code:
ipconfig /release
 
ipconfig /renew

EDIT: Disabling and re-enabling the connection in windows will renew the lease too, due to the nature of the action.
