Windows 7: Slow to open Internet Explorer 8

Slow to open Internet Explorer 8

Hi everyone,
new guy here today and my first post, asking for help, as always.

I have 4 Window 7 pc's, 1 is wired to the router and 3 are wireless. The wired desktop pc loads IE8 in just a second but all 3 of the wireless pc's take about 60 secs to load, once it is open the connection to any of my favorites is as normal, if I restart IE then I have to wait the 60 secs or so.

I have Firefox on all the pc's and it runs as normal without any problems at all. I have removed the IE temp files,cache,cookies etc and even reset IE to default settings and still it takes forever to open.

I have recently changed over to talktalk (2weeks) and have changed to the supplied HG520b router, I am very pleased with the talktalk speeds overall, everything points to some hidden wireless setting ????

If anyone could throw a pointer my way it would be appreciated.
