Slow login using cached credentials

We have some users reporting a very slow login when they attempt to logon to their machines away from the office.  Logon at the office is fine, so I am guessing that it is a problem using cached credentials.  Is there anyway that this can be speeded up.  I am getting reports of upto 5 minutes from pressing the logon button to getting the desktop.

I assume the user uses a laptop that joined the domain. Can you check if Wireless Zero Configuration is not disabled and the wireless driver is installed.

If you have software/hardware inventory application such as SMS Advanced Client . Try uninstall it.

Yes this is a laptop that is on the domain.

The Wireless Zero config is running and the wifi card driver is installed.  We only use Dell machines, so its mostly Intel cards.  I tend to remove the Intel software but leave the driver so we let Windows manage the device, not the Intel software.

Id be more inclined to think this could be a dns issue, do they all have static dns entries or are they configured to get DNS through DHCP

IP and DNS are done through DHCP.

how about mapped network drives then these often increase profile load time when not on network?

When you say wireless driver is installed, does this imply that Intel ProSet is also installed? I had problems with Dell laptops at my company and by enabling WZC service + install intel proset seem to work when use is not connected to the domain.

I would check The advanced settings in Network property to make sure the order of connects and services are correct.

Can you find any error in eventvwr? is the profile corrupted? if it is, try renaming the profile and login again to generate a new profile. If it is the same then delete the new generated profile and rename the old profile to its original name.
