Win 2008 computer Policy is not appliying to XP systems

Hi

We are trying to push Wifi Settings from group policy but these settings are not coming to XP machines.

we kept these settings in default domain policy. as this is new server there is no OUs and groups at present.

In this server we are using
1.certificate services
2.DNS
3.DHCP
4.NPS

is any one can help us to resolve this problem

This policy is defined under Computer Config/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies, correct?

If so when you RC the node to create a policy did you select
"Create a new Windows XP Policy"
or
"Create a new Wireless network policy for Windows Vista and Later Releases"

BTW - if you have a mix of XP, Vista, and 7 you should create both policies.

Hi

We solved this problem with the below changes

Created new OU for computers and applied new Group policy in that and moved required Laptops to that OU.

Now everything is working as per it should work.
