Windows XP Waits 10 Minute to Connect Network

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 a
gateway device assigns ip to it.

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.

How can I resolve this problem?

I have this same problem with one computer out of four running Windows XP on
my wireless home LAN. I assume something is funky in the registry for this
system but haven't the first idea what I should be looking for. Interested
in any ideas people have.
