Windows 7: Slow Connecting to WiFi Network at Start Up

Slow Connecting to WiFi Network at Start Up

Hi -
I have a brand new (5 days old) Toshiba A505 running Windows 7 64 bit.
On restarts and coming out of hibernation, the connection to my home router seems to take an excessive amount of time to connect -- about 5 minutes sometimes.

I run ZoneAlarm and AVG (Free).

I haven't touched any settings (that I know of) but it seems like it should pick up the Wifi right away -- instead, I often just have to wait and wait and wait and sometimes not until I hit the troubleshooting option does it connect.

Any ideas what could be happening or how I might be able to fix this?

Thanks,
Adam

It could be many things. I would start looking at your networking. I assume you are running homegroup. If so, homegroup sometimes, on some systems, has connection problems. You can see if that is the problem by making a new network connection and using workgroup instead. If it works you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup

Let us know if you need help

Try turning off power saving options on your wifi card.
