Installed new Win XP Pro laptops to a 2008 domain, The 'Applying Computer Settings' screen takes an age before logging on. Users do not have roaming profiles, and there is not a great deal of items in start-up, what come be causing this issue?

Older laptops seem to login in quickly.

They all login via wireless with top of the range WAPS.

have they been added to the domain already and are just slow logging on? Are they getting DHCP settings for network? Is the DNS set properly as incorect DNS will affect login time.
