Hi All,

I was just wondering if there is any tool out there, similar to the intel proset software that will let me connect to a wireless network before I logon to the domain?

I am using a toshiba laptop (SP2100) on a domain and because it does not have an intel card inside (it has a toshiba card) I can not connect before logon.

Many Thanks
Leachus

What OS? if XP try using the builtin zero wireless config utility and not the toshiba utility. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you won't be able to. You'll either allways have to use cached credentials to first logon to the notebook and then once it is connected to the lan it will then authenticate to the domain.
