I'm very new to Flex so I have limited experience. I have noticed that my 6300 has a similar quirk that is annoying. I'm running a brand new, dedicated gaming tower with Win 10. Except for the keyboard, the FlexControl and a bluetooth mouse theres nothing else plugged in or running. If I start the sequence normally on first startup I have no issues. If for some reason I have to interrupt that when the radio is running is where it gets different. If I have to shutdown the radio or SmartSDR the radio will no longer "see" the computer. If I turn the radio back on all I get is a hung blinking green light. To clear this I must do a restart on the computer. Not a complete shutdown. During the restart process the blinking green will turn solid and when SmartSDR reappears it "see's" the radio and away we go. I'm assuming it needs a new IP address to function. Not sure if this will help with your situation but I thought I would tell you whats going on here and see it would help you.
No Flexradio I was getting withdrawal symptom’s.
SmartSDR version 1.5.1
Windows 7 Pro
Problem: When powering on 6300, power LED continues to flash green. Typically, this boot up only takes between 45 seconds and 1 minute. LED continues to flash green, regardless of how long I wait. I must push the power button again, wait until the LED stops flashing green and the unit turns off. Then, the unit will flash green for approximately 45 seconds as normal until solid green. The unit then functions properly. This procedure must be done every time to operate.
What I’ve tried : Holding power button in to perform a reset...unit goes through a series of different color LED’s. Unit will then stay green and will function normally, until unit is shut off. Next power on will induce the same flashing green light, regardless of how long I wait. Once again, the unit must be powered down and will function normally after powering on again. Also, I have tried to disconnect the power leads to the unit for an hour and reconnecting. Same result....flashing green LED does not stop flashing. Every time I want to operate I must power on, after waiting for quite a while, I must power off and power back on until green LED is on solid. The power supply being used is an Astron SS-30M putting out in excess of 13.8 vDC. Any help to resolve this is greatly appreciated.
Happends every powering on.
After power on, initialosation process start. Callibration is not finishing successful, display is blank and the green light flashing.
Hold the power button until it shuts down, Press again to restart and my Flex-6500 starts sucsessfuly.
The first try today---- would not power up correctly (constant flashing green). Power down with hold.
The 2nd try today (few seconds from first try) power up was normal. Then power down for 3rd time.
The 3rd try today (few seconds from the 2nd) power up was normal.
Will follow this thread.

Can I just leave it on ? I am having knee problems and at home I do not like going down then up the stairs to my shack just to press the button on the flex so I can use it in my Man Cave in my pole barn. I have a little heated work room out there and it has became my second shack because I do not have to do the stairs.
