I can't directly answer your question, however:
You say the link goes down when the router is rebooted. This implies that
the computer is connected directly to the router, not via a switch,
otherwise the link would still be present. Is that correct? In that case,
since you have only one computer connected, would it not be easier just to
set the network configuration statically and be done with it?
