Slow performance SBS users when away from the domain

Have a few SBS 2008 networks with folder redirection enabled: I am redirecting My docs, Desktop, Favourites.
Users are mainly on Win 7 laptops and work a lot away from the domain using their home DSL, wireless DSL or public broadband.
Problem i seem to have (and this is Not because of slow internet):
When trying to get to any of the redirected folders access is slow. Up to two minutes before the workstation realizes it is needs to work off-line. (I do not want them to have VPN access)
Is there a way to make the machine work off-line immediateley??
(By the way: If I get them to use VPN access is instant)
Any ideas would be appreciated.

If using VPN is instant it sounds like a DNS issue as the machine is expecting the server to respond and is looking for it.

How can I fix?
Network settings are set to automatic.
Ipconfig reveals it picks the external DNS and default gateway from wherever the users are located?
Where else can I look?
Also slow opening programs?
