you could start by finding a more appropriate place to ask the question! –  Mitch Wheat Jan 31 '10 at 14:55
does not sound like a programming question, should be asked on serverfault.com –  Tony The Lion Jan 31 '10 at 14:55
We need more details...I can't even begin to figure out what you actually want to know; you didn't even mention the OS (which usually means windows, but still!)... –  marcusw Jan 31 '10 at 15:33

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.

One possible problem can be, that the operating system or some program tries to access something at the network and the firewall disables this. This leads to a request that is never answered, thus the network driver waits until it gets a timeout. This means, you experience slow start. Check if you can set your firewall into a mode, where it will ask your for allowance of all accesses. Then you will see which accesses are the ones that you should allow (instead of disallow) to have a working computer.
