Found the fix and it was an easy one. 
went into windows control panel->systems->hardware Tab ->device manager
and select the network adapters and then choose the nic card that is
giving you issues. Right click on properties and then click on the
advance tab there you can enable lan on shutdown. that seemed to do the
trick as it actually turned the lan back on during the shutdown process.
Still wondering if there is a bug or not in the linux driver and will
get the information posted in a new thread when I have the chance to get
it when he happens to be online with his linux up

Thanks again for responses
