I just got my network running again after some virus brought the entire thing down, so now the virus is completely gone, I have Norton Corprate on all the computers, and thats all besides office that the computers have (if that matters).  I have 1 wireless laptop that is still haveing problems though.  It is running XP Pro and joined the domain fine, I have it listed in Active Directory as a computer, but users cant log on.  Administrator account logs on fine with no problems, as soon as I type in a standard user, it says the system can not log you on now the domain is not available or something like that.  The Laptop however resolves an IP address from the server as it can go on the internet and browse the network when logged on as administrator?  All of the other computers work fine, all users can log on anywhere else but the wireless laptop, then all the problems start.  I have other computers pulled into the wireless router and connect to the network fine.  I have a WEP key on the router and the laptop and im assuming that doesnt matter since they connect.

Hi dfreitus:
When the user logs in, make sure the login name includes the Domain name.
So instead of Login: UserName, it should say Login: DomainName/UserName.
Good luck!

Thats seems to be ok, the users can log on on the other computers just not the wireless laptop.  The some of the other computers are hooked up to the wireless router and work fine, I have the router using a WEP key and MAC filtering but that doesnt seem to effect anything because I can get on the internet which is all done through the server if I log on as Administrator or locally on the machine.  When I try to run a program with Run As though I get something like there is no logon server available to handle your request.  How do I fix that?

I am sure they do.
On the wireless laptop, make sure that they login as I described before.

They cant log on....it says the domain is unavailable.  Whe I logon as Administrator it lets me in and when I try a RunAs command it says there is no logon server available.
