Windows 7: Taking long time to acquire ip address after rebooting

29 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32bit
Taking long time to acquire ip address after rebooting

Machine with Windows 7 Pro 32bit.
This peculiar problem from 4 days, when the machine is logged in, it takes very long time to acquire ip address (though its a static ip).
The Network icon at the task bar keeps searching (rotating) and meanwhile I cannot open any folders or applications.
It gets connected after a while approx 10-15 minutes.

I have reset the winsock. Tried stopping some unwanted services in msconfig, disabled the built-in firewall, uninstalled antivirus (security essentials).
No hopes...
Any workarounds....

Click start>run. Type 'cmd' and press enter. In the command prompt type in 'ipconfig /all' and press enter. Paste the results into the thread.

From what you have said it sounds as though it is looking for an IP address and doesnt have a static address assigned.
