Windows 7 – There are currently no logon servers available to service this request

A Windows 7 laptop (on WiFi) that was previously added to a domain no longer authenticates users.  The error reads “There are currently no logon servers available to service this request.”  Clicking on Network ID to run the Wizard does not resolve the problem.  Installing the latest Windows 7 updates also doesn’t do the job.  For the Wireless network, the appropriate DNS server IP is configured but still nothing.  Removing the laptop from the domain and then adding it again does not work :/  Enabling “Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon” policy under Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Logon in the Group Policy and nada.  Running the commands gpupdate /force and ipconfig /flushdns also fail.  At your wits end you run regedit, find the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key and add a string value %comspec% /c netsh wlan connect name=”<profile name>” to make sure that the WiFi network is available before logon.  To your dismay, this also does not work.  Finally, after digging through countless posts you opt for a simple solution buried deep in the confines of the internet.  You delete the WiFi profile and reconnect, then magic happens.
