    slow startup when internet cable connected


    Hi.

    What could cause this problem:

    If I start my computer (net cable is connected) the startup take almost 4 minutes.

    But if I start my computer (net cable is not connected) It takes only 1.5min to get login screen ?

    I dont get any error messages. It just takes so long?

    I have FC6 and my laptop is Intel M 1.6Mhz, 512 Mb, 30Gt.
    I have wireless network card, but I dont use any wireless connections.

    Is there a DHCP server?

    Is it searching for a DHCP server on the network and not finding it? Or is there something wrong with the DHCP server it's trying to connect to? Or maybe there's a hardware issue with the NIC.

    Any error messages in your logs?

    Thanks for advices.

    I'm quite newbie in linux. Could you tell me where I get the right IP-address?
    Do I also have to add Primary DNS?

    Your ISP should provide you with that information. As an example, here's the help page for my ISP, Sonic.net, which has some pretty good FAQ's. Your ISP should have something similar, explaining the configuration. If not, try their help line.
