    “There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request”

      Assuming you're trying to use wireless ? The wireless is turned off possibly.

      If not using wireless is your network cable properly plugged in ?

      It means that your computer needs to connect to a server before it even lets you login. I.e, you need to be connected to the internet in some way.

      Wifi won't work unless you've connected to a network before, so your only hope is plugging it in with an ethernet cable and hoping it connects successfully to whatever server it's trying to connect to.

      If I plug it into the University of Brighton ethernet will it be able to connect to the England Cricket Board server...?

      I am assuming this is a laptop issued by the company you work for?

      It's looking to verify your account against your company domain. Have you ever logged into the laptop before? If you have it should picked up your locally cached profile and login to that without the need to verify your account on the domain. If you've never logged into the laptop before then it would need to be connected your company network in some way, either via ethernet or wi-fi, this would normally have to be done while on company premises. You can then take the laptop away, login at home and connect to home wi-fi etc.

      Only if the UoB network allows open access and has access to the internet and the ECB server is accessible form the internet.

      The internet access is pretty free and easy here ( :ahem: ). Is it likely that the ECB server will be accessible? Otherwise I'm screwed as I can't get to Lords today...

      I'll give it a whirl. Thanks.

      Bollocks...!!!

      It teased me by flicking to a nice "Welcome" screen before going back to “There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request”... grrr

      Any other ideas about a way round this?

      Your laptop is not recognised by the domain.

      Has it been a while since you used it at work ?

      Removing and re-adding to the domain always works for me... but you need Admin to do that...
      Time for some proper football, win lose or draw :-)
