Windows 7: Delayed connection to network

XP and 7
Delayed connection to network

It seems like it takes several 5-10 minutes for windows 7 to realize its supposed to grant my computer access to the network. After boot up, I open the network and only see my own computer. I refresh several times over 5 minutes and finally the other network computers appear.

How do I fix this?

More of a quick fix, as soon as you have refreshed and seen the
other computers on your network, try making shortcuts for them
(e.g. on the desktop) and open them through the shortcuts, without
goint to the network centre and waiting each time to refresh.
I hope it works.

Windows7 beta 7000

One of the things I like about Windows 7 is my internet connection is there when the system finishes booting. With Vista, I had to wait a few minutes.

FWIW, my connection parameters are what Windows 7 set up. I'm using a WRT54G router to DSL. My network adapter is Intel's Gigabit network.
