I have a win2k domain and I am trying to grant my laptop users rights to change their network and dialup settings without making them a local admin on their laptops.

I have tried creating a separate ou along with polices to allow this but still no luck

Only local administrators can make network configuration changes under W2K.  The best solution is to add these users to the local administrators group.

Another choice might be NetSwitcher for Windows.  There is a service based version available that permits non-admins to use it to change the network settings.  See:
