Windows 7 Wireless connector taking about 20 minutes to initiate


Over the past two days my computer (Windows 7) has taken about twenty minutes to boot up.
The wireless connection at the bottom right of the screen seems to be the culprit as it swirls for that long then finally seems to make a connection.

Does anyone have a clue on what may cause this?

Where is your nearest Wireless Access Point (AP)? What is the signal strength like?
What network protocols does the AP support and your wireless connection on your PC?

(1) Booting up your router.

(2) Try disabling and then enabling the network card.

(3) (Do you have the latest network card driver?)

(4) [How old is your router? Is the firmware up to date?]
