When at home on my wireless network, I have a consistent problem starting internet explorer, firefox or even windows explorer. Sometimes the frame of the app will display, but will not finish starting, and other times nothing will display at all and the app does not start. My system will "hang" indefinitely and will not allow any new application to start. Existing applications are still accessible and run OK. There is still plenty of CPU, RAM and Page file available to run many more apps. I have a laptop with a button to enable the wireless system. When I disable the wireless, the app will complete it's startup and the system is no longer hung. I can then re-enable wireless and continue using the app (with a refresh to view the web page).
When at work, I can use the LAN and the office wireless network without any problems at all. This is a new problem as my home wireless system used to work fine with my system. My wife's laptop doesn't have this issue at home, just my computer. The wireless router at home has been reset and is an open network with no security.
20Gb free harddisk space
3Gb page file
Windows XP Pro w/ SP2
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
