This is generally a sign of DNS problems.

Check DNS settings on client.
Also check antivirus/firewall, or better disable it if possible and see if any difference.

Are you using roaming profiles?  I've been playing with them recently and if you are, they could be the reason.

Check out http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Profile-Folder-Redirection-Windows-Server-2003.html

About 1/2 way down you will see info about folder redirection.

I would first try this if you dont already have it enabled


Under Computer Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Logon, change "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" to ENABLED.

Edit:
Ba "check DNS settings on client" I meant you should check if your client has 1st DNS setup to point to domain controller's IP, and not to public DNS or router.

You will probably loose all the config info.
Some things to check
Under the Ethernet TCPIP - use DHCP with Address reservations - Then under the DNS tab
Put your domain name in the DNS suffix for this connection  - i.e.  yourlocaldomain.local.com

Ping the server name from a command prompt - make sure it's hitting  the right IP
If it's not Check the HOSTS file
Manually put the server DNS in as primary then the gateway as secondary
Disable any personal firewalls in your Macafee - (That's why I won't use any AVS that has any kind of firewalls - They are great for the guy at home without a router - but they cause nothing at problems in a business environ
