Thanks for that Hika!

For me on Mythbuntu 16.04 it looks like the network is slow to start because 
the network interface details are not set by the NetworkManager software 
until the user-login is complete.

So to fix this, I:

Disabled the NetworkManager ~
|sudo stop network-manager|||
|    echo "manual" | sudo tee /etc/init/network-manager.override|
|Set the network interface to have static IP Address.  Note: you need to do 
an "ifconfig" to see the (potentially new) name of your ethernet port.
Since the update, mine has become renamed from "eth0" to "enp6s0"
|Add to /etc/network/interfaces ~
     auto enp6s0
     iface enp6s0 inet static
|Seems to have fixed that issue OK.
