LAN 10 minute wait

    I've been fartin' around with this problem for a week now and am no
    furthur forward despite a lot of work, so I'm hoping some learned person
    here might have an insight.
    Running Window 7 Home Premium on a Laptop.

    I've recently attached a new NAS (Synology DS110j) to the LAN and for some
    reason I can't fathom, or configure out, when the lappy boots if the NAS
    is OFF, it spends the next 10 minutes or so doing something on the LAN so
    there's no LAN communication between it and any of the other Win XP
    machines.
    The two XP machines don't care if the NAS is Off or ON, they just work.

    The Harddrive in the NAS is not Mapped to the Network, so it can't be
    looking for that.

    I've Configured/Unconfigured/rebooted a mass of thing network related,
    but no change.

    Removed the NAS from the LAN completely but no change.

    If the NAS is On when the Lappy boots, then the problem goes away, but the
    NAS is only running at weekends when I do my computer backups.

    Any thoughts/insights please?
    Thanks
    Dave

    Either leave the NAS on, or tell Win 7 not to automatically load network
    drives (if you can in W7 - it's been a couple of OSes since I last did
    that).
