Using ActionTec 1424WR Rev I router with 1 year-old Lenovo Intel i3 laptop (win 7) and wired connection.
After booting laptop, getting the laptop network connection to recognize the internet takes about 70 seconds.
Yes, that is not a long time, but I would expect it to take 30 seconds at a maximum.
I have installed the latest Intel network adapter driver.
Thanks for any ideas,
