Limit wireless adapter to a single (WEP or WPA secured) netw

Postby chicagotech » Wed Aug 22, 2007 8:25 am

I'm going to make an assumption here in my next question: why are you then
issuing laptops with wireless NICs? In most cases, organizations give
employees laptops with wireless so that the employees will work for free in
airports, hotels, at home, wherever. But since I don't know the specifics of
your case, I could be wrong. Tell us more?

You can configure policies in Windows Vista to do what you want. However,
Windows XP doesn't have any built-in way to do this.
