Hello.  I've never "started a discussion" before.  Ah well I've always had good luck with the communities so here goes.  Today I plugged a Belkin multi-port adapter into my MacBook Pro running OS X Version 10.6.8  This enabled me to plug in my keyboard; mouse and printer.   Yes after two years I wanted to be back to an independent full keyboard and mouse.  BUT ALAS!  Now the little spinning wheel keeps appeariing while I'm on the Internet and I learned through my "Help" app that I have "slow start-up, pausing at Initializing network or "Configuring network time"  (sounds like some of the men I've dated).


Could it be the multi-port adapter?  Should I use a different model?  The abiltiy to have the printer; keyboard and mouse all connected at the same time is important to my work. 

In advance, I send my thanks!


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
