Start a windows service after there is network connectivity

There are several services that are failing to start at the server boot. When you start them manually they start and run with no issues. The service account is a domain account which is giving an error in the event log saying that no domain controller can be found. This lets me know that the service is trying to start before it's connected to the network. Is there a way to set the service to start after the network is connected? Or just change it so it starts after the server is online? We also cannot do cached creds.

Thanks in advance
