Initial network connection

Windows 7
Within the last 2 months, my win 7 computer takes between 10 and 20 minutes to connect to my router. Once it is connected I have no problems. I dual boot Win 8 and that has no problems connection immediately. Prior to 2 months ago, I would connect up right away. What happens is that I see the icon in the lower right of the task bar and it will have a blue circle going around (the usual waiting thing). sometimes I get the square box with the yellow flag but not always. I have search all over the net and cannot find anything that works.

    i believe it should be running on DHCP on both the router and the pc right? do you have any problems getting IP for lets say tablet or cellphone?

    maybe if the if takes so long, go to the command and type ipconfig/release then after that ipconfig/renew.

    next maybe u can go to your motherboard website and see if there is a latest driver that you can update.

    last question is do you have enough IP to pass along to all devices?

    Thank you for the quick response. I will give a response to your questions as an aid to someone else who might run into the same issue.
    1. Yes tablets (2) connect up immediately and so does my dual boot 8.1
    2. That might have fixed the problem (see the end of this response)
    3. Never tried the motherboard issue.
    4. Yes there are enough as I can connect 5 devices at the same time for sure.
    Following is what I finally found and tried and it corrected the problem. Unfortunately I wasn't able to save the cmd part to see how each command worked or didn't work as the case may be.
    It now follows:


    @Echo on
    pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    attrib -h -s -r hosts
    echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
    attrib +r +h +s hosts
    popd
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    ipconfig /flushdns
    netsh winsock reset all
    netsh int ip reset all
    shutdown -r -t 1
    del %0

    Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

    Your computer will reboot itself
