Windows 7: Windows 7 Ethernet over USB works but is very slow to acquire IP Add

Windows 7 Ethernet over USB works but is very slow to acquire IP Add

I have a Windows 7 64-bit Professional machine connected to the internet through a Netgear N300 Router. I also have a small Linux based camera that does Ethernet over USB. When I plug in the Linux device to the Windows 7 machine, it takes about 50-60 seconds to obtain an IP Address on the 10.XXX.00.X network from Windows. In Windows XP with the same configuration, the IP Address is obtained almost immediately!

After the minute of waiting, everything is fine. I can ping and otherwise use the connected Linux device anyway I want.

Why does it take so long to obtain an IP Address for the device under Windows 7 and how can I troubleshoot or fix this? Is there some sort of priority setting needed?


Using Microsoft Network Monitor when I plug in my device I immediately receive the following:
