Win7 takes LONG time to get IP after slp/rbt

Specs: Windows 7
For about 7 wks, Toshiba Lptp with Win7 Pro has been giving problems getting an IP over wireless. (Couldn't try wired for many reasons). Would have to click on the wireless symbol and manually select the correct network to connect to (several are recognized in area, but only one is mine), wait several minutes before it finally connected. Sometimes had to do this two or three times (up to 15 minutes to get to www access sometimes!). WWW searches revealed many attempts to fix (remove IPv6 etc). I read through one of M$ repair for a Vista problem and figgered what-the-heck. I opened the registry key at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
Under this key there were several entry's. One of them had sub-entries. The primary entry was my router (revealed by looking at the DHCPServer IP address), the others were not my new home router. I exported them, named them appropriately and made a text readme file to explain what they are. I then deleted all the sub-keys.

I have rebooted the machine and put it to sleep several times. The wireless now connects quickly.

I will continue to test this. If anyone sees a problem with what I've done, please let me know. I hope this helps others with similar problems!

Right click on the wireless icon in the tray. Choose "let windows manage the connection". Then stop the NIC software from loading at boot time in msconfig, startup. Click apply, ok, reboot & click apply again.
