Is it better to push a priinter via a scipt in Group Policy or use the registry edit in group policy

Hi guys and thanks for any help you can provide.  I have multiple wireless laptops carts with a printer for each one.  I have to push printers to all of these laptops over the wireless link.  Do you recommend pushing the printer script in the startup or logon computer and user config uration settings or pushing the printer via the registry edit.  I've never done this using the registry edit and was just wondering if you guys recommend one way over the other.  Also, should I configure the settings differently over a slower, wireless link (G speed) or configure the settings the same way I would over the LAN.  I have tried setting the detect slow link at 750 but I still find I have to force the group policies for the printer to show up.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

The Very important thing is the Laptop MUST be joined to the Domain for a Script over the GPO can work

and what about the Wireless or the LAN, it depend on the nunmber of laptops you have
another thing your wireless MUST be protected, in case its not then DONT use the wireless for anything

Thanks for the reply.  Yes, all the laptops are joined to the Domain and we have several laptops.  We have more laptops than I want to think about in wirless carts.  And yes, we use security on the access points.  The problem we've been experiencing is you always have to do a gpupdate /force for the printers to show up.  I've been pushing the printer scripts in the startup of the computer config node.  I enabled slow link detection (750) and I'm now going to set in computer config/admin templates/system/logon and then i enabled always wait for the network at startup.  The last setting helps somewhat but there's still no consistency.  I would appreciate anyones advice on this issue and would you guys recommend deploying printers via the startup or logon scripts or using a registry edit.  I;ve heard you and deploy printers in group policy via a registry edit but I don't know how to do it.  Your help and expertise is greatly appreciated.
