Why is it that .....

......when I boot up my laptop, sometimes before it's even finished loading everything, the little broadband connection arrows have already turned green, and other times they stay amber, then flash a while, then stay static, and eventually after around 3 or 4 minutes, they turn green?

Probably a dumb question, but I am just curious really! :?

Why is it that .....

This is the nature of ADSL technology.

It can take time for modems to syncronise with the exchange. It is the process of getting them to talk at the same speed and the right time.

This can take a long time on some occasions, and other could even fail.

This is why it is sometimes quic, and sometimes slow.
