Windows 7 Wireless Network Question

I've got a site setup where they are using a Sonicwall TZ170 for wired/wireless routing.  A problem I am having is the GP I created that is supposed to make the units authenticate on the wireless prior to login is not working.  The reason I'm concerned with authentication prior to login is I want them running their group policy/ADUC scripts for drive mapping and other functionality.  The wireless users have to log off/on a few times and it seems to be about logon #3 that the wireless will be fully connected and their logon scripts will run.  I've searched everywhere I can think of in the Windows 7 networking and have tried downloading the Dell wireless utility for the model laptop that they're using, but it doesn't appear to have any ability to take over the connection and manage it like I'm used to doing with prior dell utilities.

what is the model of wireless hardware is in the laptops?  it may be the dell wireless client, but perhaps it is a intel wireless NIC.  i know for certain that the intel client will perform pre-logon.

It's a DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini adapter.  PCI Vendor String: VEN_14E4&DEV_4727 - doesn't look Intel to me. :(

Contacted Dell and they confirmed they did not have any software to allow this.
