I have set Local Area Connection as first choice, Wireless Network Connection as second. In the tray icon,it is finding for the connection, it took almost 2 min.or so to find the LAN connection.  I have set the metric of LAN to 10 and wireless connection to 12 and also disable wireless connection. I would like it to start directly to local area connection at start up instead of searching for others before to local area connection. My OS. Windows 7 ultimate.

         Thanking you.

Metric?  Mind explaining what that is?  As far as I know, you don't have to set anything.  Given a choice between a wired and wireless connection, Windows will always connect to the wired first by default.  Also, once your ethernet cable is always plugged in, Windows shouldn't have to "search" for other connections before "finding" the LAN connection.  If that is happening to you, something is definitely wrong.

Thanks Agouti  Metric is where you set which connection you wanted it to take priority, if you have a LAN and Wireless connection installed in the computer (my opinion). When the computer boot the Internet access icon the blue spinning circle in the tray, spin for sometime and turn red X, after sometimes it turn to ! mark then finally to LAN connection. I do hope you and others can help.

That's new to me.  Right now I am connected by both Ethernet and wireless and I don't have to set any connection to take priority.  Never had to.  Windows takes care of it automatically.

Thanks again Agouti I also am  surprise why I could not get straight  to LAN instead of Internet access icon spinning to search for it, I do not use the wireless connection for now only for some purpose I only use. Well I do hope someone can help.
