I have this office laptop running Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit, which will not detect the 'Domain network' profile after a full boot/reboot until I disable/enable the network adapter or that I disconnect/reconnect the network cable, while it's connected to the office's network.
The network shows as "Unidentified Network" with "No internet access". Once I reset the adapter or replug the cable, it's detected without trouble and shows as 'Domain network' with internet access as it should.
I've searched all over for a solution and so far I have not found anything helpful. I have tried enabling the "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" policy but it didn't change anything.
EDIT: The same issue occurs whether Windows Firewall is enabled or disabled, so it's not a firewall issue.
EDIT: I checked my NIC drivers and they are up to date (dated 12/02/10), so it's not a driver issue or at least, not likely. Windows can't find newer drivers online. (Using: Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller)
Note: Our company is using Sophos Safeguard 5.5 to encrypt the whole system, so I'm going through the Safeguard logon pass-thru before I get to Windows.
