It took a lot of tries but finally we found it.
-> Your question is a good one. Do you think that makers of such things are approaching the day where they need to lock the machines down so such things can't happen?
I have owned my R480 notebook for a bit now and have been experiencing and issue for the last year or so. Every time I turn it on, come back from sleep, restart, it takes a couple of minutes for it to start processing its internet connection. The notebook says it is connected to the internet and has access, when I open a web page or try to use anything that requires an internet connection, it takes a couple of minutes to actually connect. Once it actually goes to the page, it works fine, but can take 2-5 minutes, which is rather annoying, Any help would be appreciated.
