Hi,

Our Logon scripts are not running as my Wireless connectivity is coming after user login.

We enabled the below feature from our 2008 AD GPO (We are using PEAP - TLS for wireless)  but no luck still my wireless is getting after user login

Global PO via "Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon"

is there any other way to do this

You might be using a third party utility to connect to your LAN - try using the Windows built-in utility instead.
"wireless Zero configuration"// It's a service and should fire before  you logon

This service is already running and we are using the same.

When we use PEAP - MSChap its working fine but with PEAP - TLS we are getting this problem

Make sure your computers are authorized to use your Wireless connection policy.  I added the Domain Computers group so that the PC can authenticate to the wireless if no user is logged in.

Under the NPS policy, under Conditions set the Windows Groups to DOMAIN\Domain Computers OR DOMAIN\Domain Users.

Is your workstation set to authenticate as computer when computer information is available? In GPO it's under the wireless policy on the IEEE 802.1X tab.

Hi Kevin.

If i use PEAP - MSchap i can use that option but now i am using PEAP - TLS it will use both user and computer certificate for authentication.

To get back to the original question, you can disable logon optimization by using the following policy setting:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\ Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

What you really want, though is for wireless to work before the user logs in.  I would check the event logs on the client and IAS server to see what is going on before the user logs in.  There must be errors in there describing what it wrong with your PEAP-TLS setup.  I am using PEAP-MSCHAP and it works like a champ.  Do you know if your machine auto-enrollment is working properly?
