network connectivity lost when joining the domain

Whenever I join a VISTA or Windows 7 proffesional machine to our domain, all network connectivity to that machine is lost!
In device manager the NIC is there & working correctly, but Windows says no adapter present.
Prior to joining the domain, the adapter is working fine.
All windows XP machines are ok, only happens with Vista or Windows 7.
Domain is Windows 2003 server running 2003 fiuntional level & the forest is also running at Win 2003 server functional level

This is interesting,joining machine to domain & it losses n/w connectivity,try disabling Antivirus & if not then boot into safe mode with networking & see if it works.

Not got to the stage of putting Anti Virus on (install is on the network)
Booted into safe mode with networking...no connectivity
Am reinstalling Windows 7 to start again
I'm sure its not because joining system into domain it looses the connectivity, can you run rsop.msc & see what GPO settings are applied & post it here.
