    I have a Laptop that has windows Vista home premium, it was working fine before I left for a couple of week for Christmas holiday, but when I came back in the office, I tried to start it, but after starting, the local area connection for my Internet takes long to show up or to be ready for use, it takes more than 5 minutes to be ready. It shows a red x on it Until 5minutes passes, then it will connect itself. When I check the cable from the laptop to the switch it is all connected well. I had no such problem before I left for
    Christmas holidays. What might be the problem? And how can it be solved? Help me please!
    I use an Ethernet network type, with a network cable which connects the laptop to the switch
