I have xp sp2 and every reboot it hangs at preparing network connections for
at least 60 seconds. Its not a dns issue, and its not a host file issue.
Any help

A 60-second delay is typical when a network connection is configured
to obtain an IP address automatically but can't communicate with a
DHCP server to get an address.
