General Networking/Lan/Wan/Cisco time delay issue

Question
Dear Jeff

I have a network with 3 cisco catalyst  3500.  When I move my computer from one of cisco  ethernet ports      to another ethernet  port of the same cisco or from one cisco switch to another cisco switch. I have to wait for a long period,  For example 10 mins,  to be able to connect to  internet.
Is there any configuration of Cisco that needs to be modified to reduced this time delay.

Regards,
Andre

Answer
Hi Andre,

Sounds like portfast isn't enabled.  Try that.

Spanning tree prevents loops but can interfere w/ moving PCs until it converges.
