Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

blue circle at startup, NIC is basically trying to establish a connection and when it cant, it keeps on circling. Either NIC, Modem, ISP or Firewall issue.

Windows 7

Just posting a possible solution, after trawling the forums all night.

Turned my computer on and it seems to be working. I had to change the power management options in my network configuration to prevent windows from turning off the device to save power. Not sure it it's a once off, but hopefully it has corrected the issue.
