I have been having several persistent issues with my xps 1530... #1 persistent issue: when I boot up it will take up to several minutes for the device to logon to a wireless AP (whether running secure or not). This is very annoying as you can imagine. #2 - the device will lose web access at random times and require a reboot...when attempting the reboot it sometimes takes up to 5 minutes for the device to shut down to start the reboot process. I originally thought that it may have been a bit torrent client that i was using at the time, but after an uninstall and system scan the issue persisted..At that point i narrowed it down to Mozilla (so i was thinking) I was having issues with mozilla to where i would close the application but where the process would continue to run and I could not end and would require a reboot (again taking several minutes to shutdown). I did an uninstall of Mozilla and grabbed the newest version (even though mine was updated) and installed..issue has persisted. Also it seems to happen more frequently when I'm using a torrent client. when this happens it shows my connection to the network is still active but all http requests are blocked..it appears to be purely a software issue somewhere. I have tried different firewall settings and even closed down zone alarm to no avail. this is the list of installed appz: zone alarm pro 8 eset nod32 3.65 Firefox 3.0.8 Thunderbird 2.0.021 paintshop pro ms office 2007 If anyone can help it would greatly appreciated. :-D Greek.
