what is causing XP for the very slow login (after entering username,
password and domain)? it's the same logging into a NT4 or AD domain. i have
checked all network settings and they are OK (DNS, WINS, suffix, etc).

if i leave the PC on the network (without logging in) long enuf for about
15-20mins, and then login, it goes in as normal.

what can cause the slow login?

More about : slow login domain

It sounds like a DNS problem. After 15-20 minutes the computer browser
service will find a domain controller with NETBIOS. What DNS server is the
workstation using? Do any other computers on the network have this problem?
Use ipconfig /all to determine which DNS server you are using. The first one
listed has to be a domain name server. Can you ping the first one listed?

I would guess you are waiting for a 'timeout' on some form of Authentication.

See control panel, network connections, rightclick LAN icon, Properties, see Authentication tab.

I'm having the same problem. I'm able to ping the first ip in the dns servers. What next?
