    Hello.
    I have Win 7 64 bit SP1 and a hard wired cable to a Netgear WnDR3700v2 router. At startup it takes close to 90 sec. for the internet to be available. I have tried safe mode with networking with no improvement. I have also tried a wireless connection. Still no improvement. The router has the latest version of firmware. Why does it take so long to connect or is 90 seconds considered excessive? Thanks in advance.

    Does your Ethernet/NIC interface have the latest drivers?

    This issue has been resolved. The culprit was Windows Media Player Network Services. Once it was disable connection was almost immediate. Thanks to all who made suggestions.
