    Can someone please explain to me why my laptop which is a member of our
    corporate Active Directory domain seems to have slowness issues at home when
    not connected to the corporate LAN?

    Here are two clear symptoms that appear to be directly related to this
    because when I connect to the corporate network at home via a Cisco VPN
    client, neither of these symptoms persist:

    (1) When I am browsing the Internet, for example, and am trying to save a
    file, Explorer opens and takes a significantly long time to show me my
    "default view" of folders... (doesn't happen when using VPN client -- they
    pop right into the window)

    (2) When I am using Internet Explorer, I have to type in http:// before any
    URL. If I don't, it's almost exactly 30 seconds after typing the URL that IE
    will eventually open the Website I typed in. Again, this behavior is not
    replicable when I am using the VPN client with "domain connectivity."

    I would love to know if this is a "bug" in Vista that will be fixed or
    whether there is a "hotfix" available that addresses this "symptom." I can
    reproduce this on multiple machines that are members of the corporate AD
    Forest and exhibit this behavior immediately upon connecting using an
    Internet connection that does not have access to the corporate domain (i.e.
    using cached credentials).

    Thanks in advance for any assistance in understanding (and hopefully
    resolving) this unwanted behavior.
