Windows 7: WiFi connected, but no internet (delay)

Windows 7 (Build 7000)
WiFi connected, but no internet (delay)

Hey folks!

I have tried W7 for about a week now, and I love it! I have one problem though; Windows connects to my wireless router at startup, but I have to wait 2-5 minutes before I can access the internet, Spotify and e.g. Live Messenger.

Programs like for example Windows Update and F-Secure downloads updates and stuff, but I can't surf on the internet or log on to Spotify.

There seems to be some kind of delay..

Any ideas?

Windows 7 (Build 7000)

After reading a bit on the forum, I tried the solution where I disabled IPv6, but this didn't improve anything..

I'm going to run a "tracert" in CMD to see where it stops..
