    Slow (10 minutes or more) initial access to internet

    This is a problem sporadically affecting two Windows 10 machines we have in our house.

    Most of the time, internet access is as expected - log in, and, within reason starting fresh, you're on the internet and going.

    But sometimes, the computer will be in a seemingly-normal state, and there's no internet access, and the connection to the home wifi has not happened.

    In both cases, the computers are used during the day, then restarted at end of day, and fall into a sleep state, before being wakened in the morning to log in.

    And 90% of the time, the post-login internet access works fine.

    It's just that 10% that has me confused. That, and the fact that I've never done anything to make it come back - just let time slowly pass.

    Any explanations or things to check?

    I check two things.

    Are these computers asleep when you awaken or are they hibernating? Maybe shut hibernation off on one and see if behaviour changes.

    Next I would check the power management options of your NIC's (in device manager). Uncheck allow the computer to shut off device to save power" and test.
