Wireless Network on Tablet PCs
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have been on the phone with Dell for the last 3 hours trying to get something resolved with this, so hopefully you all can lend a hand;
I currently have 13 tablet PCs all of which are on a domain and on Windows 7 Pro. All of them have the 'automatically connect to this network' setting checked on the Wireless Network.
My problem is that the network is not visible to the tablet until a user is successfully logged on. This being the case, no domain user is able to authenticate successfully because there's no logon server visible to the machine when on the Logon Screen.
I can plug in a network cable, and authenticate, and once the user's settings are loaded, the wireless connection goes from disconnected to connected. Likewise with a local user.
Is the wireless connection not able to be viewed by the tablet until a user's profile is successfully loaded? If so, how in the world is this a viable solution within an enterprise environment???
The WAPs are all SonicPoints if that helps any. Domain Controller is a Windows Server 2008R2.
Any help would be much appreciated!!!
