Wireless Connection prefixing computer name with domain


At a place where I connect via wireless to their internal domain.  To do so I have to prefix the login with the domain like:   DOMAIN\Username

However Windows 7 prefixes my computer name domain before it like:  ComputerName\Domain\Username

Thus it won't connect.  How can I turn this off in Windows 7?

try username@domain instead

Nope.  There is some setting somewhere in the wireless connections.  Nobody here seems to know though.
