Windows 7: Reduce domain password check timeout

Reduce domain password check timeout

Hi,

I have a laptop from my university. When I'm at home, obviously it cannot connect to the university domain controller. However, instead of just going with the locally stored password, it will spend a good 30 seconds trying to connect to the domain controller. Is there any way to reduce this timeout to a more reasonable time (i.e., 5 seconds) or disable it altogether?

Regards

Hi there,

From you home....were you trying to logon using the domain LogIn which causing a delay? or... you were logging in locally?

Thanks for your reply, I was logging in locally (so no VPN login, that's sometimes even quicker than waiting the 30 seconds, but will fail on some routers I use)

I have a computer with Windows on the SSD booting in 30 seconds flat - which is doubled by a domain password check. So, no.

More specifically, can I change the domain group policies somehow on my local computer?
