Wireless connection issue

I connect my laptop to the Net through a WiFi connection using a Netgear router at home using XP's Internet Connection thing. Normally when I switch on the laptop it automatically connects no problem. Now when I switch on, the icon shows I am connected, signal is excellent, I can surf okay, but the icon keeps showing "Seeking network address". This continues for between 2 and 20 minutes. Is this just a minor glitch or an indication that something is breaking down.
