my laptop is on the domain. i take it back and forth from work to home. At
work, its fine because the dns is pointed to the AD dns server so it starts
up fast.

But when i take it home, i get my ISP's dns server. so i guess applying
computer settings and preparting network settings is slow

Also in order for me to log into the domain at home, i am runnning a cisco
vpn client that starts up before i log in.

But the slowness is really before all that

its slow starting up at

preparing network settings..

and

applying compouter settings



What do I have to do?

I'd leave the network cable unplugged until you get to the Cisco VPN client
connectoid. This way it'll time out on getting the DNS server, and
therefore won't attempt to look for the domain controllers at the office.

Hi,

The slowness is definitely due to DNS issues. However, I am unsure how
to define it differently for two different domains. Have you thought
about using Hardware Profiles? That is all I can think about right off
the top of my head.

Cheers,

Lara
