Failover not working due to route being cached

I've got 4 Dell laptops with an Intel 82577lm that are used at a remote location.

At said location, I have 2 Internet connections that are setup in a failover scenario.

The issue I'm having is that once the connections failover, the laptops aren't working because it seems they're caching the route.  I have another Windows 7 laptop that this is working fine for...just not the Dells.

Any ideas?

I forgot to mention that if I pull the network cable out of one of the Dells and plug it back it...it'll start working.

Lovely Windows.
It just started working...of course.
