    After switching on the desktop (Win7), the symbol of the LAN connection in the taskbar keeps on showing the blue turning circle. Even clicking on it will not show the link to either open "Network and Sharing Center" or "Troubleshooting" until about one or two minutes.
    If one waits long enough, the ring will disappear.
    The point is, that as usual, about seven seconds after switching on, when everything else is ready to go, I can simply open Firefox and work as normal, the internet being connected... still, blue circle keeps turning....

    Can someone tell me what is going on? Is there a problem somewhere that needs dealing with? I have re-installed both the Atheros driver and the VPN and its driver... but no change.

    Thanks
