Default Connecting to Wired Network long wait

Hey everyone, Having a weird issue pop up as of late. When i log into windows the network connection just does its blue circle thing, nothing happens for about 20 - 30 seconds. During this time i can open up windows explorer but thats just about it. Any other program or window i try and open during that time period doesnt load until the connection is made. Pretty strange started out of nowhere. Did a fresh install of windows about a month ago and didnt have this problem till just last week. Nothing has changed as far as router or internet configuration. At a loss really at this point.

And it is a wired connection, no other PC's on the network are expiriencing this. And there is no sharing setup between the pc's

Assuming you're using DHCP, try static IP and see if that helps. Rebooting the router might help if it is a DHCP issue.

You may even have a bad cable between your PC and router.
