    I have sometimes noted a delay when connecting and disconnecting network cables, with recognition of a connected or disconnected PC. Sometimes the delays are a number of minutes, but eventually the right PCs show up on the list. I also read something on one of these threads about this "feature."

    Is this what you're experiencing?
