  1. Let me tell you a bit about my set-up. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and my internet connection is via a Bt homehub.
    My problem is every time I start up my PC I don't have internet connection.
    The only way to get it is to go to local area connection and disable it, then go back in and enable it and then I have internet access.
    I have taken screen shoots of whats happening.
    Not sure if the file has uploaded so sorry if you don't see it. New to this site so having to get used to it.

    Can any one see the word file I attached as I can't.

    Assuming that's a wired and not wifi connection.

    Before you boot, disconnect from the BT and let the system present the desktop, then
    connection to the BT, wait 30sec and you should have a connection.

    Your Firewall should be left active

    Like to see the View Connections, but copy the text from this and past into your follow-up:
    start->Run->enter IPCONFIG /ALL

    This attachment shows what I get when I start my PC. As you can see its given me Mutiple networks when there should only be my home network.
    Yes I am hard wired to the BT Homehub.

    This next attachment shows my Local area connection screen with no access, so I disable it then go back and enable it. I have to do this everytime I start my PC.
    Also attachments showing the screens after I have disabled then enabled.
    It is getting annoying having to do this everytime to get a internet connection.

    Hope someone can tell me how to correct it.
