XP Laptop Hangs on New Network

XP Laptop Hangs on New Network

XP Laptop Hangs on New Network


We have a laptop that works fine on it's own network, but as soon as you introduce it to another network (be it 3G with a VPN or on another customer's network), the machine hangs for about 20-30 minutes.

During this time the CPU is pretty much 98 idle and there are no apps running.

As soon as you unplug the network, the machine jumps into life... Plug the machine into it's own network and it works perfectly.

This is really strange and is beginning to drive us nuts!

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! smile
