My problem is that whenever I start a program that connects to the internet the initial connection takes up to a minute or more. This happens when I start IE or my VPN connection (for work) or my email program PC Pine which connects me to an IMAP server. MS Outlook for work email through the VPN connection also seems to be timing out. Once the initial IE page loads all other pages load just fine and my PC Pine connection is also fine. My guess is that something changed when trying to get the wireless connection to work in Europe but I'm at a loss as to where to look.
