Windows 7: wifi adapter slow to load at startup

01 Jun 2017   #11

win 7 starter 32-bit

I experimented again with selective Startup items

The only thing I hadn't disabled was the AV.

Removing the AV certainly speeds up boot time and has shaved a bit off the wifi loading, but there is still a considerable lag that didn't used to be present.

So that is some progress. I see the AV services are still running so yes I'll still be protected.

The only other items I had in startup were kde mover-sizer and a couple of autohotkey scripts, but their loading impact is negligible.

I already follow the Black Viper and another service list recommendation (forget the name) and most of the list you linked, but there's one or two I've missed, so thanks.

No difference with chipset I'm afraid.

I also tried net adapter repair - no difference.

I created a restore point beforehand to be on the safe side.

Hi WillM,
As your travelling around your available connections list is going to grow, not sure if the troubleshooter deletes/removes older connections and connects to the strongest available.
It wouldn't hurt to remove some yourself as a test?

Another point there is a preferred connect to network option, uncheck any that have this selected.

Thanks Roy.

I do prune out old connections as I move around, currently there are four I use in this area.
For what it is worth I've now moved the two most used to the top of the list.

All four have - connect automatically when in range - checked.
They are not within range of each other.

If I've understood you right, none of them have - connect to a more preferred network - checked.
