ok thanks James.
I think i`ll have to live with it. its not like i`m rebooting often anyway. Everything else is working great, so I dare not touch any of it.

Still no luck with this. I did try a static ip address but it just failed to connect to the net when I did this.
Any instructions on how to setup a static ip address? I tried setting my tcp/ip settings under wireless settings to the address` from my ipconfig /all . but without any luck.

do the following go to run when the box appers type in CMD and it will bring up a black dos window in there type ipconfig/all and it will run and get a list once that has passed type in ipconfig/release and that will drop all network connections then one last type type in ipconfig/renew and that will reconnect al network connections

Thanks for the reply.
It seems the problem is with my d-link wireless adapter taking a while to get an ip address.
I get these messages in the event viewer
"Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address ..................
Then after a wait this...
"Your computer has automatically configured the IP address for the Network Card with network address ................... The IP address being used is 169.254.........."
Once the adapter gets the network address (about 2-3mins wait) I get the connection.

1. Possibly XP firewall preventing access to DHCP?
2. Try re-typing the wireless key into the setup of the wireless card. (NB its case sensitive).
3. conflict between wireless card software and the wireless zero configuration service under Windows XP
