problems with wireless conenctions and 1054, 15 errors

I have roughly 80 computers in my building that connect wirelessly. I have 6 wrt54g2 wap's placed around the building. I have MAN profiles that are used on these computers.

The problem I am running into is everyday I am getting 1054 and 15 errors from the XP machines.

Error 1054

Microsoft Product: Windows Operating System Version: 5.2 Event Source: Userenv Event ID: 1054
Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (%1). Group Policy processing aborted.

Error 15

Microsoft Product: Windows Operating System Version: 5.2 Event Source: autoenrollment Event ID: 15
Automatic certificate enrollment for %1 failed to contact the active directory (%2). %3 Enrollment will not be performed.



I know these are related to the wireless connection, but not all the computers have a problem. Some have the errors one day, then no errors the next.

If the wrt54g2 is the problem I need some recommendation on better models to get. The wireless just handles MAN profiles, Internet browsing, and one programs that writes to a db on the server.

I have no problems with the computers that are wired. And if I go to the computer that gave the error, they do receive the GPO and enroll in AD, but not on first boot up.

The problem you are getting is that (according to the post) the machines are domain-connected, and the machines are trying to authenticate before the wireless kicks in. At least, this is my experience and others may have more experience to offer here.

Several possible solutions: Remap network drives once fully started, and that will bring most services back; There is a way to delay domain authentication (I have been so told, but have never done it); In the case of portables, consider removing from the domain (back to workgroup) and connect with a batch file of the needed NET USE statements to provide services.

I have used options 1 and 3 here, but not 2.   .... T

Delaying the authentication would work. If I knew how.

I have tried changing them to a work-group, then back to domain

Is the wrt54g2 part of the problem?

Take a look at Microsoft Knowledge Base article number 305293. It deals with delaying authentication until fully logged on. It involves a group policy change. It has been suggested to me (as I noted), but I have NEVER done it (as I noted).  ... T

I already have a GPO in place to wait for the network before logging in. This problem still comes up.

I almost wanna say it's due to the wrt54g2 wap's.

I have an HP Access Point tied into a client's network. Domain-connected machines behave as I described in my posts (which is my experience base here), and for certain, when the three different machines use wireless, they just re-map their drives and move on - everything else (printers predominately) work.

So, maybe it is your WAP, but I am not wholly convinced. I just have nothing more to offer at this point.

The solution to this problem was a rouge dhcp server.

once this was taken care of the 1054 errors stopped.

Thanks everyone for the insight.

Though he did not provide the answer to the problem. He did provide education on these types of issues. Which will be of great help in the future
