Auto connection to the internet

  User-394903 21:29 24 Dec 2005

I am operating Win XP SP2. Until about 4 weeks ago I could hit the power button on the front of my PC and would auto connect to the internet. Now I can't do this, I have to wait what seems an age and wait until the red light on the front of the PC stops flashing. If I try, say, clicking the start button, there is an age of wasted time before I can connect to the internet by clicking connect to and go through the process of connecting.

Any ideas as to what can be/is the problem?

Thank you
