Okay so every time that I connect my computer directly to the router it seems to take a while before the Computer gets a internet connection.

Does anyone know why this occurs, it happens to all my computers.

Is there anyway to make it get connected faster??

because i have to like connect and disconnect the cable a couple of times before i get a connection..

Are you using the same cable and router? Have you tried using different cables and/or different router?

Edit: Also define what sort of time frame you are talking here. Like 20 seconds or 20 minutes?

Yeah I have tried several cables and computers all the same not that long but at least like 3-5 min. Before it gets connected. not really a big issue just wondering why does that happen and is it normal?

Well if you changed cables and it happens with all computers...sounds like it have to be something wrong with the router....

Exactly what I was getting at. I would suspect a router issue.
