    Hi all

    When my laptop boots it take ages for it to conect to the wireless network. Everything else is loaded up and i can use the machine but have to wait for it to connect to the internet.

    Its no big deal as it does connect but i just wondered if there is a fix for it as i have noticed this happening on every vista machine i have had and its getting on my nerves.

    Hope somebody can help

    Thanks

    Have You Tried Removing Start up Items?

    Go to start up orb, in start search put msconfig. This should bring up " Services Tab" (hit that). On Vista you'll get the system configuration tool- give permission to proceed. Check "Hide All Microsoft Services". Then uncheck all start up items you do not wish to have.

    For a list of functions: What they are and what they do see---

    Startup Programs Database

    For an additional list see:

    Already made sure that the only things running on startup are what i need.

    I only have antivirus running at startup.
