Slow startup after setting up home network

  Dekay 11:46 13 Feb 2006

After setting up home network, on computer running Win XP it takes about 3 minutes befor you can connect. The sound icon apears in the system tray then nothing for about 3 minutes.
During this time you cannont access the control panel or my computer. Everything is ok once network icon appears in taskbar.

I think this is because xp is looking for other connections on the network ie pc2, pc3, etc.

Don't know what you can do about this, maybe someone else will.
