I rolled the system back to the 18th, after the reboot, the network connected almost immediately. The 7036 ids have been reduced to under 600, and stop once the os has fully booted. Computer browser service seems to be the culprit, taking over 500 start and stop messages in these 7036 ids. the service will not stay running even when manually started from the services menu. the network and internet are all working fine.
I checked all the dependencies for the computer browser, they are all running. On my other pcs the service continues to run.
I removed and reinstalled the wireless adapter drivers, no difference. I have gone through the system logs to see if any changes were made to software, or hardware were made, nothing there. The only difference I can spot is the node type for the network adapter is now broadcast, I believe it used to be hybrid.
I also see a new error id 1001, appear on start up from the DHCP client trying to assign an ip address to the virtual wifi miniport.
I'm at a loss as to what has changed for sure.
thanks in advance
