This post is made of copy-pasted parts from a blog post on CodeWhirl, from author Wrostek. I only placed it here to make Google show better results for the correct solution instead of the symlink one.

The original post can be visited here: http://www.codewhirl.com/2011/10/ubuntu-11-10-waiting-up-to-60-more-seconds-for-network-configuration/


So, the only other solution must be to edit ‘Waiting for network configuration…’ script. This script is actually located here: /etc/init/failsafe.conf

Around 25 lines down in the file you will see a section:


# Plymouth errors should not stop the script because we *must* reach
# the end of this script to avoid letting the system spin forever
# waiting on it to start.
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting for network configuration..." || :
sleep 40

$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration..." || :
sleep 59
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Booting system without full network configuration..." || :

To solve the problem, you can just remove the calls to sleep, by commenting the out ( or at least reduce the wait time if your network really does need to wait )


# Plymouth errors should not stop the script because we *must* reach
# the end of this script to avoid letting the system spin forever
# waiting on it to start.
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting for network configuration..." || :
#sleep 40

$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration..." || :
#sleep 59
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Booting system without full network configuration..." || :
