Here's a tricky one. Becaues I have DSL plugged in, my windows xp pro sp1 hangs when windows starts; I can't go into my computer or open explorer for about a minute
and then every thing goes back to normal.
When I leave my DLS UN
plugged, everything starts up normally.
My brother up stairs has the same problem even though he has windows home sp1. All my friends that have DSL have this problem. I've had DSL from two different providers in the past 3 years and I really never did anything about it because I just lived with it, until now. =) Now I'm just tired of plugging and unplugging, god.
I have no scanners or printers attached and I'm not networked with anyone, and I've always had this problem on my Pentium Intel chipset computer and still on my AMD nforce chipset computer; even with updated bios and chipset drivers even for the network card.
Can anyone figure this out? You guys are the best. =)
EDIT! PROBLEM SOLVED:
The solution below stoped that hanging I was experiencing during windows startup:
start/control panel/network connections/right click Local Area Connection/properties
Click on internet protocol then properties.
Dot "Use the following IP address" and put in 192.168.1.10 for IP and 255.255.255.0 for subnet mask.
This solution came from dslreports.com, here is the link:
Thanks to everyone who tried to help. =) I'm so happy that I don't have to live with plugging and unplugging dsl everytime I restart windows! =)
