    Win 7 HP 64-bit network very slow in starting

    Hi all. I just installed a Kingston HyperX 120g SSD to my main system, and I'm having a few weird things happening, one of which is that when I boot up and Win 7 starts, it takes almost a minute before I connect to the network. My system is connected directly to the router, a Netgear 3700, cat5 cable. I have tried flushing the cache and all sorts of other suggestions, but it just is very slow connecting. Now, this is a new install on this SSD. I replaced win7 64-bit installed on a raptor 300g, and the network started almost immediately on the raptor, no problems at all. On this new install, I have dumped all drivers loading at start-up, no difference. No effect from anything I've tried. I've removed the drivers, re -started, let windows re-install the network driver, no difference. I'm stumped.

    One of the selling point to SSDs is how fast they boot. Mine is very fast, but now it takes me longer to get onto the internet than it did before. So I'm kinda losing on this deal.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Never mind. Win 7 updated to a new driver on its own, and that seemed to resolve it. Thanks.

    Well, all good things must end. It's back taking a minute to load. That was weird. Win updated the driver, that fixed the problem, but now it has started up again. What the hell would cause this?

    Have you tried pinging the gateway?

    yes, I do it all the time, and usually do so as administrator. I already have run the ipconfig flush dns command, but that has had no effect. you mentioned "pinging the gateway". What command are you referring to? Thanks.

    Use ipconfig to grab the gateway address then use "ping x.x.x.x" (Minus quotes) in order to ping the gateway.

    Okay, I pinged the ip v6 address, got 4 packets sent, 4 received none, lost.

    BTW, just got back from weekend trip. The network started immediately, even on a restart. I've had some problems with my wireless printer connecting as well, and now I'm starting to wonder about my router.

    Does the ipv6 address start with fe80:: ?

    If so its a auto assigned ipv6 stateless address and will always answer a ping request.

    Should access your router's config page to see what gateway address is in use.

    Re: Win 7 HP 64-bit network very slow in starting

    I've had some problems with my wireless printer connecting as well, and now I'm starting to wonder about my router.
    I also had some web sites (always same sites) that would constantly drop out.

    I replaced my router and it seemed to cure that problem.

    The odd thing was it was only one computer. I have 2 hard wired to the router and 3 wireless.

    The problem computer is still slow to connect initially and I have tried 3 different wireless cards.

    I am starting to suspect my motherboard now.
    Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    G-Skill 1600 16G
    Corsair H100
    EVGA 670 GTX
    2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
    2 x Seagate 1T 6G
    2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
    Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
    Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
    Windows 8

    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Disable ipv6 on windows also, that should help. I doubt your ISP is using it yet, so it's just more work for windows to try and resolve an ip for it when it does not have to.
