  • Wireless causing slow boot

    Installed my wireless card last night and now CF takes ages to get past the loading plugin screen - about 2 to 3 mins?

    Any pointers

    Running:
    1800xp with 512mb ram on XP SP2

    Is it a USB, PCMCIA, PCI, what?

    Also is the long part before the welome screen, after welcome screen but before anyprograms start running (filling system tray), or when CF is loading its own program?

    If you disable CF from starting on startup, does it take just as long? Withut CF starting at the beginning with the wireless, is it slower than booting with CF disabled and no wireless?

    We need more info. We live on info!!!

      I get this, what chip is on your card.

      I get desktop fine in normal time, but it takes ages for the wireless icon to appear, also I cant <right click> 'my computer'/properties to get to device mangler until its stopped this 'loading' process.

      boot vis didnt help

      If I am within a wifi area, its a delay of about 2 seconds, if I'm out of wifi range, its 60 before I can use some things.

      biggest problem is it wont load my gps drivers/compass until after the wifi....

          Maybe a little script could run at shutdown to disable the wireless connection.
          Then when you reboot, only when you first open Mozilla, IE, or something that calls for an internet location, does it enable the wireless again.

          Basically whenever something calls for the internet, "enable wifi unless already enabled", and then when shutting down "disable wifi, no if's, and's, or but's about it"

          Could help.

            That might fix it for him, I only have the issue if I boot, if I hibernate/resume, I have no problem.

                  Try disabling USB boot and/or network boot in the BIOS.
                  Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                  How about the Wiki?

                    Its usually dhcp that it is waiting for with network/wireless cards. I'm not sure if you can lower the timeout value somewhere in the registry?

                      will try both of the above, at the mo i have it booting into windows then i manual start CF and it seems to load ok. Before i was using CF as a shell and that caused problems?

                      O dunno!
