You need to set the default domain in the authentication settings of the website or virtual directory where you desire the setting to apply.

Here is what you need to do:

So what are some common reasons making this change would not work?
I made the above change, stopped and started the site, and still can not login without using my domain prefix.
I don't know of any reasons why this should not work. Try to restart IIS as a whole instead of only the website. Does not sound logical but its worth a try I think.
Ok, do you have Windows Integrated Authentication activated? If yes, that could be the problem. Because when Windows Integrated Authentication is used and the current credentials do not work, a login window will appear to prompt for credentials. This login pop-up is not Basic authentication but Windows Integrated Authentication. And for Windows Integrated Authentication you cannot set a default domain.
If both Windows Integrated Authentication and Basic Auth are activated, the browser will not fall back to Basic if Windows Integrated Authentication fails but pops up its "own" login window.

Hope this helps.
You could use username@domain.tdl instead.
