Are you using a router? My guess is that you network card is detecting the
routers IP address and then connecting to the router. This may take a few
seconds from the point at which XP desktop becomes usable after booting.
You might speed things up a little bit by optimising your boot sequence by
running Bootvis (Google search for it).

Hi jeff and andrew.
Let me give additional info. on this problem.
I am using a Cable Internet connection.From the cable modem, it is
connected to a router shared by 2 computers. The problem does not
happen to the other computer. In addition i have other Windows 2ooo
and XP in the computer and the problem did not occur with these OS.

Thanks again.

Couple things to try out:

Go to File and make sure Work Offline is unchecked

Make sure you didn't have any of your websites in your Favorites list
set to Make available offline.

Tools -> Internet Options -> General tab -> Click Delete Files and
check the box which asks if you want to delete all offline contents.

Last option would be to change one of the registry setting as
instructed by Microsoft. It's fairly easy so you shouldn't have a
problem. Here is the link:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q180946/
The only concern here is that the article states that explorer starts
in offline mode and REMAINS in offline mode. In your case, the latter
is not true. You can still go ahead and give it a try if you want to.
Good luck.

HI.

After deleting all the offline contents, the initial connection
problem was solved.

Thanks to all of you.
