Activate Wifi before Windows login screen.
Posted on 2004-08-23
I have a "Medion" laptop (P4, 2.8 GHz), with an integrated wifi device (Prism Intersil).
I have installed Win XP Prof , SP2.
The wifi is working properly, but I had to activate the wifi by using a dedicated button on my laptop.
By browsing the forums, I saw that their was a way to automate this activation of wifi,
by changing a registry key.
This works great, but the trouble is, that wifi only gets active after that the computer has completely started up.
But to login to my domain, I need it to be active when the login screen from windows appears.
I've tried everything. Nothing works.
Configuration of wifi is set to "Let windows configure my ..."
Also tried manually. Didn't help.
PS. Can't find any support or drivers for prism intersil. Has been sold a few times i think.
