how to configure WLAN in order to logon to a domain with win

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

Most wireless adapters are not "activated" until you make it to the
Desktop,...since you have no "connection" before that point you can not
login, can't get to the Desktop, the adapter isn't activated, and you get no
connection.

So,...you have to login first with the machine on a wired connection. Your
profile will be created on the machine and you can from that point on login
with the cached profile, get to the Desktop, the nic gets activated, and the
connection gets established after the fact. It's kinda like closing the
barn door after the horse comes back in.

I would love for this to have a better solution, but the manufactures of the
wireless Nics seem to be focused entirely on "home users" and don't seem to
think this is something that needs dealt with.

This has to be repeated for every user that will be using the machine if
they have never logged into the machine before.

If this is not your situation you will have to explain it better. It is hard
to make a judgment about a situation with only a one-sentence post.
