I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 Enterprise that I am allowed to take with me and use at home. I am a local administrator on it. The problem that I am having is that when it connect to a working WiFi connection to the Internet. It runs really slow. I am guessing that it is desperately trying to find the My Documents folder which is on a shared folder on one of the domain servers. I have to turn off the WiFi radio everytime I log in to Windows or open any program. When it's done I turn back on the WiFi radio.
Is there a way to lower the timeout or let it know that it's on a public network which is not the home base or something?
