I want to use my company's windows domain to authenticate my ASP.net website and capture the Username/userID and verify the credentials from the tables I created.
How do I do this?

You can use an authentication mode of Windows.  See

You can then use
HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name
to find the user name of whoever is logged in.   Note this works for INTRANET web sites...for web sites facing the world you are better off with Forms authentication  (or one of the open source identity providers)

When I use  <authentication mode="Windows"> in web.config, nothing is happening. Can you explain in detail. I am new to this.

I tried using Basic authentication and it works fine, but it throws popup login when page loads, is there a way we can use the same functionality integrating in Login page?

If you use Windows authentication mode, nothing SHOULD happen.   You are already logged into Windows, so there is no need for an authentication page....the user name should just magically be in HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name.

What kind of environment do you have?  Are you working at a company where you are part of a domain?

Or do you just have your own desktop?

(sorry, forgot you already mentioned you were in your company domain...but details could still be useful)

(note that you also need to disable anonymous auth, or it won't bother going through windows auth)
