Windows 7: Delayed network connection issue

Delayed network connection issue

This is more of an annoyance/concern, but 'most times' when I boot my machine, or restart, the "Network - Internet Access" icon in the taskbar has a blue circle over it (too small to see if it is spinning) that lasts almost exactly 60 seconds, then a yellow triangle appears for a second or 2, then, sometimes, a red x for a second, then it goes to normal. It does not do this coming out of Sleep. Every so often it does not do it at all. I have internet access throughout this process. My IPCONFIG and NETSTAT readings all look normal. I have 3 desktops, 1 laptop, and 2 "other devices" on my LAN. Rarely are they all on at once. I have no network or internet connection problems, just this new, odd behavior.

My Windows 7 64 bit install is about 40 days old. This behavior occurred recently - in the last week. I may not have noticed it prior, but I first noticed it happening just after I installed an Epson Artisan 810 printer that has a wireless feature. I installed it via USB cable using the correct USB driver for Windows 7-64b downloaded from Epson's website. The printer is set up and works and is being used wirelessly on 2 other computers. The odd network behavior was happening before I set up the other 2 wireless connections.

I don't know how to "see" what is going on while this is happening. Opening Network and Sharing reports no errors. In the Windows Event Viewer I do have these Errors and Warnings (the ones that I think are applicable):

Error: Event ID 2 - Kernel Event Tracing
Session "homegroup Log" failed to start - 0xC0000035

Error: Event ID 1002 - DHCP Client
The IP address for the network card with the address 0x.... has been denied by the DHCP server (The DHCP server sent a DHCPNACK message).

Error: Event ID 7022 - Service Control Manager
WIA service hung on starting

Error: (I have your typical Master Browser war going on).

Warning: Event ID 1014 - DNS Client Events / System
Name resolution for the name timed out after none of the configured servers responded.
(The name is my ISP and/or modem)

So what do you think is going on? Please let me know if more info is needed.

Also: I have reset my modem and router.

I take it, while I listen to the crickets, that this is either a dumb question or a strange/difficult one.

Just today, whilst doing other things, I noticed that in Windows Explorer there are "magnifying glasses" rotating around "Computer" and "Network" at the same time that the above mentioned behavior is happening (Still happening). When the "Network - Internet Access" icon clears the "mag glasses" clear at the same time.

I'm suspecting this is some kind of name resolution issue. Has anyone else every seen this behavior?
