Windows XP Waits 10 Minutes to Connect Network

Windows XP Waits 10 Minutes to Connect Network

Post by Evren Yen » Sun, 28 Sep 2003 01:28:19


I have a windows xp networking problem. In our university
campus we use TCP/IP protocol and static ip adresses to
connect university network and internet. For 6-7 months,
our computer (windows xp) can not connect to the network
for 10 minutes after booting or rebooting the computer.
After starting windows we have to wait 10 minutes to
access network. There is no problem in any other operating
systems (Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Linux etc.) We have
this problem only with Windows XP. The computer is
connected directly to a switch and this switch is
connected to directly to a Enterasys SSR 2000 router(the
gateway of our building - its ip adress is 193.140.238.254)

I made a test and see, any other computer can ping me in
this 10 minute but I can not ping them in this period.

I tried different computers but it did not solve the
problem. I installed netbeui protocol but it did not work
too. I tried both half and full duplex transmission modes
and they did not make a solution.

I think there is a communications problem between windows
xp and SSR 2000 because no one can make a succesful
windows xp internet connection in our building. When
anybody try to install windows xp to a pc, they encounter
this problem again and again. But in other buildings, they
can connect to network with windows xp installed computers
without any problem.

How can I solve this problem?

You haven't given enough information to assess the problem. Are you
unable to access file shares and printers for ten minutes or are you
unable to ping by IP address for ten minutes? (Ping your default gateway
and your DNS server.)

Certainly seems peculiar. If you were using dynamic addresses, I'd say
it was the DHCP server that was having trouble assigning you an IP
address. Your computer works fine after ten minutes, so I wonder if
there is some administrative block in the network. Ask your network
administrators.
