Bug Description

When my wireless net device is turned on during boot, the boot process waits for 30-60 seconds more than when it is turned off. I'm using Kubuntu/Feisty on an IBM T60 laptop.

when your not using wireless, this could solve your problem.

I am using wireless all the time. But there is no connection at boot because it requires a passphrase. The connection is first established when I log in.

Thanks for your comment. However I don't thinks this suggestion is a solution for "Joe Average".

Thanks in advance.
