The usual rule would be that when connecting to a domain network, such as a company, Windows Firewall should automatically switch to the domain profile. However, many times, Windows Firewall cannot recognize the domain network on the Windows 10 PC or any changes to the network settings.

The reason behind this problem is mainly a third party VPN (Virtual Private Network) which creates irregularities in the network path. Fortunately, there is a way to fix this. Let's see how.



Method 1: Disabling NegativeCache in the registry

Before proceeding with changes to the registry editor, be sure to create a backup copy of the registry data so that in the event of data loss, it can be restored.

Step 1: Go to Home button up your desk and type Regedit in the search field.

Step 2: Left click on the result to open the file Registry Editor.

Step 3: A Registry Editor window, go to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Services Netlogon Parameters

Step 4: Now, on the right side of the window, in an empty space, right click and select New in the context menu. Then select Valore DWORD (32 bit) in the submenu.

Step 5: Now, right click on the file you just created Valore DWORD (32 bit) and select Rename in the context menu.

Step 6: Now, rename the new one Valore DWORD like NegativeCachePeriod. Make sure the value is set to 0.



To check, double-click NegativeCachePeriod and in Edit DWORD (32-bit) value window that opens, make sure the value is set to 0 a Valuable data field.


When done, restart your PC and the problem should be solved. But, if the problem persists then follow the second method.

Method 2: setting the Dnscache key in the registry

Step 1: Go to Home button up your desk and type Regedit in the search field.


Step 2: Left click on the result to open the file Registry Editor.

Step 3: Now copy the path below and paste it into the address bar of the file Registry Editor Window:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesDnscache

Now go to the right side of the panel and right click on an empty area. Click on New from the context menu and then select Valore DWORD (32 bit) in the submenu.

Step 4: Now, right click on the file you just created Valore DWORd (32 bit) and select Rename give the menu answer.

Step 4: Now, rename the new one Valore DWORD like MaxNegativeCacheTtl and make sure the value is set as 0.

To check, double-click MaxNegativeCacheTtl to open the file Edit DWORD (32-bit) value dialog box and go to Valuable data field to check if it is set to 0.

That's all. Your Windows Firewall should now connect to the domain's network profile and you should no longer experience this problem.
