    Hi Guys,

    I have an "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection" card installed in my laptop (with the latest drivers from intel.com.au and SP2 + security updates etc)

    When the card is 'enabled' in my network places the computer takes forever to bootup. It gets into windows quickly but it is unresponsive until the 'no wireless networks' icon pops up in the tray on the taskbar.

    If I disable this network adapter in my network places the computer boots up perfectly and is useable as soon as the desktop wallpaper/taskbar etc show up.

    Why is this happening it's driving me nuts! On the laptop itself I have a switch that can disable/enable the wireless card, this has no effect on the bootup times if the driver is enabled.

    I have scanned with numerous programs for virus/spyware and my system is relatively clean so i'm sure its not that. I am using the windows software (with the intel stand alone wireless driver) to configure my wireless connections.

    It sounds like the version of your driver is not playing nice with the Wireless zero config service, try using a older version of the driver
