Windows XP Waits 10 Minute to Connect Network

  1. I have a windows xp networking problem. In our university campus we use TCP/IP protocol and static ip adresses to connect university network and internet. For 6-7 months, our computer (windows xp) can not connect to the network for 10 minutes after booting or rebooting the computer. After starting windows we have to wait 10 minutes to access network.

    There is no problem in any other operating systems (Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Linux etc.) We have this problem only with Windows XP.

    The computer is connected directly to a switch and a gateway device assigns ip to it. How can I resolve this problem?

    You may try this if you have windows XP Pro...
    Goto START/RUN and type gpedit.msc. Now navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Logon. Look in the right pane and double click "Always wait for the network at computer startup and login". Change it's value to disabled and reboot. Hope this helps.

    you can also try to go to the command prompt and type ipconfig /release, and then ipconfig /renew. This should release your current IP and get a new one from teh gateway.
