Windows takes an obscenely long time to establish a network connection after booting

Often, when I reboot my machine for whatever reason, it boots up normally, I log in, it shows my desktop, loads all the icons and then takes upwards of 5 minutes or longer for the networking icon in the taskbar so show that I have network access (shows that
little blue ring).  Now, normally I wouldn't think this is much of a problem since I've found a blog at one point detailing how to change the address it's using for that confirmation.  However, in this case, I'm unable to use (m)any other windows
services until it decides I'm connected.
For instance, I'm unable to open the registry editor - I'll open the start menu, search for regedit and run it, but will no longer be able to use the search tool in the Start menu until the registry editor appears and that won't appear until the network
configuration decides I'm connected.  If I open a browser (doesn't matter if it's Firefox, Chrome or IE), I'm unable to visit any sites - they say I'm not connected.  I'm unable to open the Network and Sharing center at all - if I try to left or
right click the network icon in the taskbar, nothing happens.  If I try to visit the Network and Sharing center by typing the address in a folder window, it simply never loads until that icon shows I'm connected.
In other words, my computer is pretty unusable until Windows decides I do have an internet connection.  A little about that - I've had this problem for about a month now and have experienced it while connected via wire to two different routers (Netgear,
now Linksys E3000).  That doesn't seem to be the problem. My connection is perfectly fine at all other times except when my system boots (so it shouldn't be the wires) and I've both kept myself updated with all the latest Win7 patches and firmware for
the netword card + other system components.  Oh, and no other computer on my network has this networking issue.
My system is running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1.
Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance!

Maybe try this, i am not sure that it will resolve the problem, but it is worth trying anyways.

Hi All,
I've seen this problem multiple times, especially with Windows 7 64-bit versions and Enterprise edition.  The source of the problem appears to be the Bonjour service that is installed in the background and set to "Automatic" when installing certain 3rd
party applications.  Apple applications like iTunes and Adobe applications like Acrobat Professional and Creative Suites have been known to cause this problem.  I've also seen virtualization software like VMWare and VirtualBox cause similar issues
with network adapters.
The solution in most of the cases I've come across has been to stop and disable the Bonjour service.  The Bonjour service also masquerades as a service with a name of the format "##Id_String1.6844F930_blahblahblah".  Here's how to disable this service
in Windows 7:
Right-Click on Computer > Select 'Manage'
Expand the 'Services and Applications' section in the bottom of the Left-Nav dialog and Select 'Services'
Sort the Services list by name and look for either "Bonjour" or the "##Id_String..." name mentioned above
Right-Click on the service and select 'Properties'
Click the 'Stop' button to stop the service
Select 'Disabled' from the 'Startup type' drop down list
Click 'Apply' and then 'OK'
Reboot your machine and see if the "Multiple Networks" issue is resolved.  If so, you should have internet connectivity again.
Hope this helps.
cheers,
Aaron

  • MBP takes long time to restore wired network connection after wake-up

    Hello...
    My Mid-2010 MBP (MacBookPro6,2) has been experiencing this problem recently -- Whenever I wake up the computer from sleep, it needs approximately 10 seconds to restore its wired network connection. I know there are other annoying connection issues with MBP's WiFi/AirPort out there, but I'm talking about the wired connection here.
    Maybe some don't even think this slowness is a problem at all, but this laptop used to be network-ready right after wake-up until 3~4 months ago. That was around the time when I upgraded to SSD and changed some settings via pmset, not sure if that's the culprit. It is now running OS X 10.8.5 and its pmset settings are:
    Battery Power:
    lidwake              1
    ttyskeepawake        1
    hibernatemode        3

  • Windows 7 Pro not finding network connections after boot camp installation. Is there something special we have to do to get the network (wired and wireless) set up?

    Any suggestions for getting the network connections working on Windows 7 Pro running on a Mac Min with OSX Lion?

    If you haven't yet installed the Windows Support Software, that's probably why, so install it now.

  • Firefox takes a very long time to open and cannot connect to any website

    After updating to Firefox 3.6 and attempting to follow the link to update Flash player (the link was broken), Firefox began to work VERY slowly. I closed the browser and, when I tried to open it again, it took in excess of 30 minutes to open, which it finally did. However, while it was initially able to open some websites (google.com), it reached the point of being unable to open anything at all.

    You could try to disable this feature for now by toggling this pref on the <b>about:config</b> page:

    Why is it that it would take a very long time [if ever] to change or adjust the tempo of a loop in the audio track when i set it to adjust regions to locators? Until now the spinning wheel of death is still very much spinning. thanks for any help.
    Is there another way to adjust tempo of loops the faster way, any other technique?

    No clue why the final processes have suddenly started to take so long. Two things I'd try: a) capture from an older tape to see if some problem with the new tape is at fault.  And b) check the health of your RAM and the hard drive.
    The red frame sounds a bit like a glitch we used to have in OnLocation (actually in its predecessor HDV Rack) which was caused by a partial GOP. But that was a product of HDV Rack recording from the live video stream. It turned out that HDV cameras intentionally interrupt the data stream for an instant upon starting to record--specifically to avoid recording a partial GOP to tape. So my gut says that the tape has partial GOPs at the points where you stopped/started recording.

  • Mac Air takes a very long time when manually putting to sleep

  • Macbook Pro, bought 2012, takes a very long time to start up/restart (5 mins). How do I fix this?

    My Macbook Pro, bought 2012, takes a very long time to start up/restart (5 mins) every single time I have shut it down.  I try not to shut it down at all now because once or twice, I have got a grey screen, and then nothing. I've held down the power button to shut down again and restart  How do I fix all this?

    Start up with your built-in Recovery disk by holding down the Command and R keys when starting. Open Disk Utility from there and use it to REPAIR your disk (you've already verified it and it came up with errors).
    With any luck, your problems will be solved. While I was there, I would also repair  permissions.
    Good luck,

  • Takes a very long time to load pages and is laggy

    The new''' FF (4) '''was good at first, but recently it is starting to lack the goodness it once had.
    '''It is becoming slower and slower by the day and takes a very long time to load pages. Sometimes the "loading" icon circles for 5 minutes, and whether the page loads or not depends on my luck at that time.'''
    Also, it has become seriously '''laggy''':
    '''Scrolling''' up and down, typing and '''filling out forms''' (like writing this message) etc have slowed down.
    I have deleted the history, and cleared the cache, but to no avail.
    Could it be some of the add-ons?
    Or is it that FF4 was all hyped up and '''''can't stand to it's name'''''? :)
    Please help.

    I suspect you may have a corrupt photo or image that is causing the sync to fail or quit. You might want to try removing all of your photos by deselecting them in iTunes then sync - and try adding them by each sub-folders until you are able to nail down which sub-folder of photos, that causes the sync to stop or gives you errors.

  • I have a keynote presentation that includes a significant amount of video.  When I edit the keynote slides (not the video slides) how can I save the changes without re-saving the videos (because that takes a VERY long time)?

    I have a keynote presentation that includes a significant amount of video.  When I edit the keynote slides (not the video slides) how can I save the changes without re-saving the videos (because that takes a VERY long time)?  I edit the presentation depending on the audience to which I am presenting.

    If you add a new  slide with just a text box (therefore a very small amount of data),  to an existing presentation then save,  Keynote will only save the new content to the file,  it wont save  pre-existing content as its already included in the file.
    The time  taken to "save" will be very much shorter than a "save as" when all of the existing content is saved again.

  • Takes a long time to find wireless network

    So for the past few months my (Santa Rosa) MBP will take an extremely long time to find a wireless network. This happens both at home and other places where I have connected in the past and am wanting to use a remembered network. It can take as long as two and a half minutes to connect. If I click on the airport icon in the menu bar, then it says it's scanning for networks during this time.
    Usually if I create a new location then the problem will go away but then seems to come back. The problem also persists if I use a different user.
    I've repaired permissions, done a disk repair and even used Diskwarrior. I miss instantly finding wireless networks. It's a small inconvenience, granted but was hoping to get this fixed once and for all.
    Anyone have any suggestions of things to try? Thanks all.

    My computer also has been taking a long time to find a wireless network, up to several minutes. I often have to have it "scan" for networks several times before it finally picks it up. Is there a solution? This has been going on for many months. Other computers (PCs, iPhone) pick up the signals within a few seconds, but my Powerbook takes several minutes, even over 5 minutes sometimes.
    See how many networks are listed in Sys Prefs: Network: Advance. Drag the preferred to the top. Delete any you don't really need.

    Do you have current backups?
    Those symptoms could indicate a failing Hard drive. If it dies, all your documents go with it unless you have Backups.

  • Bank statement import FF_5 sometimes takes a really long time

    Hello!
    In the middle of august we started to have problems with bank statement import FF_5 - sometimes (but not always) it takes a really long time (3 - 4 hours) to import data - usually it would take from few minutes to 1 hour (depending on size of import file). There is no error, the documents that match are posted automatically like always, the amount of documents, that are not posted automatically, is the same as always... We didn't do any new settings in system.
    We tried to find cause with debugger and sql trace, but there was no error - the import program works ok, then suddenly it stops in one line and searches in cluster table RFBLG without filled field GJAHR (year) - that means that it searches among approx 7.400.000 records (the size of our RFBLG is appr. 12 Gat the moment).
    We don't have ideas any more, how to find a cause for strange behaviour. The problem is, that there is no rule - sometimes it's ok, sometimes it works very slow - no matter how big the import file is. The problem occurs with all bank files (we have 3 banks).
    Do you maybe have any suggestions, what to do and how to find and eliminate the cause?
    Thankyou in advance for your tips!

    Hi Meti,
    Have you tried analysing differences between files that it goes slow on and files where it goes quickly?  Sounds like there is some difference in file data that causes it to do a lookup.  If the traecs are not finding the differences, it might be wortwhile to put the file data into Excel for a slow and a fast and compare field level data?
    Regards,
