    I dont have any programs running on start-up except eset nod32, and rivatuner. but My computer boots up fine, except it takes approx 3-5 min for the network to come up. I can run programs fine that dont require internet at all. but if i click internet explorer it comes to a blank page and after 5 min the network shows it works fine then after. What is going on?

    +1 on that I would make sure to try a different cat5 cable and possibly a nic card if you have one lying about.

    i figured it out....wasnt the nic nor the cat5e cable. i had blackberry desktop manager installed with media manager and when i checked the system log, a portion of the roxio media manager was unresponsive at boot. uninstalled and reinstalled minus the media manager...didnt need that anyway.
