Presuming this is a wireless network:

It sounds like there is DUPLICATE networks.

Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button, and then click or type Control Panel. Goto Network and Sharing Center. Click manage wireless networks.

Recommend: DELETE all saved networks.

Re-connect network: specify WORK

That should solve the problem

For a wired connection:

In the Network and Sharing Center, in the area labeled "View your active networks" below the connection diagram, you should be able to see your current network on the left. Under this it should say "Home network" or "Work network" or "Public network". You can click this link and select a different type of network. Choose WORK or HOME (if you are using a homegroup) AND (this is important) UNCHECK "treat all future networks that I connect to as Public, and don't ask me again" if it is checked then click close/next.
