Hi Folks,

We are using a few Lenovo laptops with Intel 3945 wireless cards.  We are having an issue with 1 user and the lenovo's.  With SBS 2003, the user can login fine on-site using wireless.  But when they are off-site with the wireless on, they can not login.  We have other users setup the exact same way with the exact same hardware, and it works perfectly for them.  We have swapped lenovos, moving the hard disk, same issue.  We have setup the user on an old Dell, with a 2200BG and it works fine.  We have formatted and reinstalled windows and drivers, twice.  It seems to point to an issue specific to the user and the lenovo.  Just wondering if someone can provide some input.  I read some other questions and realize the issue around WZC, we have not tried the Intel utility yet.  But the issues around WZC seem to be more for first login type issues.  The profile has already been login before on-site with and without a cable.  If the wireless switch is turned off before login it tends to work while off-site, but not always.

Thanks

So what exactly happens when the user tries to log on off-site with the wireless switch on?

Does it just hang? Give an error?

To answer the question above with the wireless on it would the windows login status would disappear almost about to load the desktop icons and taskbar, and nothing would happen.  CTRL+ALT+DEL would not work either.

In the end this is what we ended up doing.  After swapping out laptops completely giving the user a backup loaner, the same issue returned.  We ended up completely removing the user from AD and re-created the user.  Same issue.  We created a new user with a different syntax for the username.  Added the old email address as and STMP address and the issue has not returned at all.
