Our users each experience a 30-40 second delay the first time they try and log on to our new sharepoint site (WSS 3.0). After they have logged in once, the delay seems to disappear until the next day.
The WSS 3.0 environment is Server 2003 with a seperate SQL 2008 database.
I have read a fair amount on IIS and sharepoint warm up scripts, but the problem seems to be on each client locally.
I have also used the program "Fiddler" to check for any page errors - with no bad results.
