XP SP2 - Userenv 1054 - long login w/cached domain credentials

I understand that this is usualy related to DNS problems finding a DC.  However my DC will not be found on this network because there is a different domain here.

So I am attempting to login with my cached domain credentials to my laptop....this takes a long period of time login since upgrading to SP2.  This used to be a much quicker process, I have searched the web and everything that I have found explains that this is a DNS issue.

Is there another fix for this?  Or maybe a way to decrease the timeout threshold so that the logon portion of the startup does nottake so long?

Thanks

If the dns address is configured for the nic, windows will try to contact that address, does'n't matter if it's in the domain or not. Replace the dns address with a known and accessible dns server, or delete it if no dns is available.

Right, so the DNS server is obtained using DHCP..they are valid Servers

Valid DNS servers and the logon process is still taking minutes...and by logon process I mean the ammount of time that the logon screen is up and trying to authenticate my username and password.  I used bottvis to see what was going on...and it takes 153seconds for logon and services to complete.

You may try to add this key to the registry, which enable slow link detection:

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: SlowLinkDetectEnabled
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

By default this is enabled. I don't think you can do something, because the laptop is looking for a gc, to compare the cached credentials. But you may want to change the way the computer log on:

MACHINE
Administrative Templates\System\Logon
Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

to be disabled.
