  1. Network drivers take a long time 15+ minutes to install


    I'm running Windows 10 Pro 20H1 and I have a problem.


    Any network driver that is listed under Network adaptors in Device Manager takes a very long time to get installed. This includes the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility driver, TAP-Windows Adaptor V9, and ... most importantly ... various Hyper-V network drivers, i.e. Virtual Switch, Virtual Extension, Virtual Adaptor, etc.


    And while I might have had the patience to wait 15+ minutes, some apps, like Hyper-V Manager don't. They bail with an error message.


    Steps that I have followed to troubleshoot this issue:

    • Running various Windows and Microsoft Support troubleshooters
    • Resetting the network configuration, both via Setting and via netcfg -d
    • Uninstalling all apps that install a network adaptor and starting over from zero
    • Updating Windows

    :)

  2. Network takes a long time to connect.

    I have a DELL Latitude E6410 running Windows 7 SP1 Professional, 4GB RAM. It has
    always taken 90 seconds to connect to the wireless network. I did a clean boot as suggested here. In fact, my case.is very similar to the post at this
    address
    . But it only knocked about 15 seconds off of the time it takes to connect. When I boot in Safe Mode, it connects within seconds.

    The network adapter used is the DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half Mini Card manufactured by Broadcom. Its driver was released on 1/21/2010 and the version is 5.60.48.35. The routers are only a few years old and are supplied by Cisco. They look like smoke
    detectors w/no visible antennas.

    I have sent my A/V company e-mails about this because the firewall is only enabled when Windows connects to the WiFi network. I think they are becoming frustrated. A rep made reference to the Base Filtering Engine (BFE), but I do not think it is
    a relevant issue.

    Any and all feedback would be appreciated so I can enjoy a faster connection time and tell my A/V vendor the steps I took in troubleshooting this issue.

    Thank you for your time

  3. Windows 10 takes a LONG time to login

    Was "a couple weeks ago" just after installation of the AU? If so, I'd suggest a clean reinstall.

    Network drivers take a long time 15+ minutes to install

    Phone takes a long time to discover network

    How long is a while?

    My WP8 doesnt take long to discover the network. Maybe you are in a poor signal area. Perhaps, create a back up of your phone and do a hard reset to see if it improves the length of time it takes to find the network.
