Wireless GPO Not allowing users to change settings!

Hi Experts,

Recently i moved our Router from Open Authentication to WPA-PSK

I have added the Wirelss AP details in to the Default Domain Policy GPOE.

Wireless Network Key

Network Authentication : WPA-PSK
Data Encryption : TKIP

The key is provided for me automatically is unavailable and ticked.

I apply the settings and force a gupdate, restart the client machine. Users now can not access the Wirelss AP, it asks for the PSK key which is enterd correctly then it gets stuck on assigning network address.

Also users can no longer change the wireless settings (enter PSK in wireless settings) once applied windows complains about "One or more of your applied settings was not successful"

I am sure there is a policy stopping any changes.

I have tried putting users in the domain admins group to give change privilages but to no effect.

We do not use a Radius server and we would prefer to stay away from that route due to costing.

Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks

Do you have SBS Standard or Premium (ISA?) ?

Have you modified any of the default OU's, and are all users in the default of domain.local\MyBusiness\Users\SBSUsers ?

Hi Jeff,

I am using SBS Premium with ISA, Yes all of the users are in the correct domain.local path

At present i have found a work around by simply removing the wireless policy all together and getting the user to type in the PSK however i am still interested in how i can push this centrally as my psk will eventually be changed on a weekly basis.

Thanks in advance!

I hadn't seen this document yet, since it was published just a couple weeks ago... but I think you'll want to review the steps listed in it as they are a proven method of configuring wireless with your SBS:
