Problems with wireless computers, and 1054 and 15 errors

Posted on 2008-10-29

I have roughly 80 computers that are on wireless connections. Every day I have tons of 1054 and 15 errors from these computers. I know it's because of the wireless connections. Is there any way to combat this?

At the moment I am using WRT54G2 for my WAP's. If this is the problem, please reccommend a better model.

I have at the moment a GPO to wait for network connections.

If I need to provide anymore info I will be glad too.

What are those 1024 and 15 errors exactly? My first thought is, 80 clients on a tiny WRT54G2. If there is MIMO on the WRT54G2, I'd setup one more. It's not a true load balancer, but if you strategically place, it might. I only say this, because I know those wireless access points, or routers can only truely handle couple dozen or so wireless clients.

Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

Don't remeber the error 15. It's something to do with autoenrollment to Active driectory.

I have 6 wrt54g2 throughout the building.
