Corporate LAN problem

What would cause a Windows 7 based system to lose network connectivity on every reboot but yet if I un-install the network adapters (Intel Pro/1000 PT) in Computer Management and then Search for Hardware Changes, Windows load the right drivers and then reconnects to the corporate domain?

    [#0005ff]Some networks which include Windows 7 are slow to react to new computers joining. Give it twenty minutes or so before deciding it hasn't happened and changing hardware drivers - you could clutter the Registry with so many versions of your NIC as to confuse it even more.[/#000ff]
  2. Thanks Saga. You may have given me a possible clue - perhaps the registry is the cause. The system is already on domain so connection to the server is not the problem but the NIC becomes de-enabled on every boot so that may be a problem with the registry as you pointed out.
