Hello,
I have a HP Pavillion dv2915nr laptop with Vista Home Premium. Every time I re-boot my system and Vista loads, all the wireless and networking functionality freezes for about 15 minutes to 30 minutes before it eventually comes on. If I try to connect to a wireless network or access any network folders they freeze for about the same amount of time. Vista is supposed to automatically connect to my wireless network at startup, but I'm getting the big "x" on the network icon until it gets going half an hour later. Any ideas on what might be causing this problem?
Thanks!

Isolate the problem.
Start at safe mode with networking and work on LAN and see if your problem occurs.
Disable all start up and unmap network maps and check if the PC hangs.
Hardware tech when I was in college.
1st job was a network support for SOHO
2nd job was lappy tech
3rd Job way out of my league but its nice...

Thank you for the response kennzsniper. I re-booted in safe mode with networking and everything works fine, so it must be a problem during Windows start-up that's causing it to hang. Thinking it might be related to print server software I installed a few months ago, I did a system restore to before the install, but that did not solve the problem. So I'm at a loss to figure out what is causing the hang-up. Any other suggestions?
