Network connection takes long to "initialize"??

I've had a similar problem and it was caused by WinPcap or Npcap.

Hello!

 

So a few weeks ago the problem started, I think as I installed "Firefox" for a short time but I am unsure.

 

When I boot my PC, my Adapters show that the network cable is unplugged and after ~1 min, they show up as working normal.

 

The Problem occurs on the onboard LAN, as well as a 10G NIC (but same cable).

 

Do you have any suggestions what could cause the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks!

I uninstalled Npcap and now it connects quicker, but there is still a delay.

 

How did you fix this? Just uninstalled?

What are you connecting your PC to?

Some switches have STP (Spanning-Tree Protocol) enabled, which means they make sure that there won't be any loops in your network. Once they detect, that cable has been connected, then they run necessary checks and if there are no loops, then packets will be allowed through.

I connect to a switch, which hasn't changed since I installed my NIC and it worked fine for a few weeks.

The switch is also unmanaged (Asus XG-U2008)

Yea just uninstall and reinstall again afterwards. Still needed it for Wireshark / nmap :)

Okay thanks, but there is still a small delay, I will reboot a few times and check ^^.
