Accessing network via Network and Sharing

Hi experts,

I have five clients with WIN 7 Pro. All are using Intel i7 2600 and 8GB of RAM. All are using SSD III.

When network is selected on the Start Menu, four of the five pretty much instantly load all of the clients and server on the domain. One of the computers (actually a bit faster than the others with a WEI of 7.7 takes around 90 seconds to show the network. The green bar on top of Network and Sharing goes across the top from left to right. Once this occurs and everything shows up, when opening the network again, everything loads instantly until the computer has not been in use for awhile. This, of course, is very annoying.

Do you have any ideas?

Thank you.
