Is there a way to limit which wireless access points a laptop can attach to? I'd like to limit some new laptops to only be able to attach to the wireless access points here at work - no hotel, coffee shop, book store, etc, use.

    go to the Wireless network connection properties
    in the wireless networks tab, click on the box that says "User Windows to configure my wireless network settings"
    There is a botton with the name "Advanced" will be activated, click on it.

    You'll have some options.  See which one fits you.
