Wireless network - stop laptops from auto-connecting
Posted on 2006-04-19
Hello, I am trying to create a network wide policy to stop our laptops from auto-connecting to the wireless networks they encounter.
In windows, by default, when you connect to a new wireless network that network is placed in your "preferred network" list and is set to auto-connect when in range.
A user must then go into the configuration of this wireless network, go to advanced settings, click the properties button then the connection tab in order to remove the checkmark from "connect when this network is in range" in order to stop their laptop from auto-connecting when a network on their list is in range.
I would like to make every network on their list "On Demand". I have looked into using a GPO but there is no setting for making all or even specific networks "On Demand" using a GPO.
Any help would be appreciated.
