I have created a GPO to restrict access to modify configuration on LAN Connections. I want to confirm that is correct the GPO is applying restriction to Wireless Connection.

I am looking to restrict only to wired network, and left the availabilty to modify the Wireless connection. Is it possible to do that.

Another question, the GPO applies great on Win XP, but it doesn´t work on Win 7. Anybosy knows if it works on Windows Vista, I have no Vista to test at this moment.

Thanks

Hello,

If you configure your user accounts to run as standard users instead of administrators, they should not be able to change LAN settings.

Yes, but in this case the solutions is being asked to me from one of my clients, Currently, they allow users to install software, add hardware, etc. They want to stay there, and only restrict wired nic configuration.

I´m trying to convince them that applying the policy to wireless nic is not a big issue, considering most of wireless networks (DSL at home, airports, for example) use DHCP and it´s not necessary for users to have access to modify configuration.
