Windows 7: Delayed Network Recognition

Delayed Network Recognition

I use a MODEM. A WAN miniport (PPPOE)

When I start the computer, I wait for the network icon to show on the taskbar. After 2 seconds, it would have the warning sign, I would click it, choose the network, click Connect and since it is set to show progress while connecting, after my username and password are said to be verified, I am connected though I have "prompt for username and password" disabled. This was the normal procedure I connect.

But recently, I had this problem, that instead of waiting 2 seconds, the network icon on the taskbar would freeze for as many as 10 seconds, nothing would happen if I click on it for about 10 seconds. But it never really stays frozen.

And when it does get responsive, when I click Connect, I would see the connection progress, it would show something like "opening port". This did not show on my connection progress before.

I tried unplugging the MODEM's power before turning on the PC so in this way, the computer won't detect it at all. And when the network icon appeared on the taskbar again, it still freezes for 10 seconds.....

It seemed to started happening after I tried to connect to the network using Ubuntu or Linux Mint, but I removed those two already and I don't know if that has somehow messed with my built in network adapter and made it less responsive..

How do I fix this bug and how do I make my connection progress skip this "opening port" step???? Is this a registry bug or something??? How do I fix this???
