During boot I have to wait around 2 minutes for 'a start job is running for Wait for Network to be configured'. How to fix?

Hello. I did a reinstall after using Garuda for a good while, and I get an issue I've never had before.
During boot I have a message saying 'a start job is running for Wait for Network to be configured' which takes a good two minutes to complete. Is there something I can do to speed this up?

I haven't tried anything yet, as I'm not sure if this is a specific Garuda thing or a general thing.

Edit: picture of the boot screen

Could you please provide your
systemd-analyze blame
If it shows an high value for
Maybe you could try disabling that service. Just an idea from:


systemd-analyze blame indeed shows a high value for that item

Just FYI:

Sometimes I have found a systemd mount unit would avoid this issue rather than using fstab (when mounting network drives).
