    No Internet for 30/60 seconds after bootup.


    Issue copied from reddit /windows10 as i'm having the same issue..

    Hi all,

    I've had this issue for a while and haven't really bothered to do anything about it till now. Since I upgrade to Win10 some months ago, I've noticed that every time I start or reboot my PC my internet connection dissappears after the first 5-10 seconds and then returns some ~60 seconds later. The loss of connectivity is not displayed in the Network sys_tray nor will Chrome/Edge tell me I do not have a connection. What happens instead is that the browser tabs take a very long time to load until they all suddenly load at once. Services like steam connect on start up, but then I go into offline mode as soon as I "lose the connection".

    I'm not using WiFi and have not changed any hardware since upgrading to Win10. My suspicion is that I'm able to receive packages, but my outgoing packages are being, somehow, blocked. I am using zonealarm but have also tried with it uninstalled.

    So, has anyone else had similar experiences? And if so, what could be the solution?

    Looks like it might be something to do with the DNS Client in Windows which is set as Automatic StartUp (Trigger)

    When I'm having this issue, I can ping 8.8.8.8, but not google.com

    Any idea how to speed up the starting of the DNS Client ?

    Issue was my hosts file had 65,000+ entries resolving to 127.0.0.1
    All added by BitDefender Anti CryptLocker.

    Reset my hosts file, marked it as read only, rebooted and bingo.. SORTED.
