How do i join my laptop to a domain via the wireless connection
Posted on 2011-02-11
So, clearly I am new at this -- so here goes:
I installed windows server 2008 r2 and added roles for DNS, AD, and i think domain controller...
I have a machine, networked via ethernet, that i have successfully connected to the new domain i created.
I am however having trouble getting my laptop connected [which is using a wireless connection].
Same for wife's macbookpro.
I have added the name of my laptop to the Computers Group in AD.
I have changed the Wireless Router to stop using DHCP.
I have changed the laptop's NIC to point to the server 2008 IPAddress for DNS.
Again, I am new at this -- so I guess my question is:
What additional steps do i need to complete before a laptop, connected to the network via a wireless router, can join the domain i created?
oh, i think the message that appears when i try to connect was something like:
"No logon servers exist" or maybe "No client server/workstation relationship"
Thanks for any help that can be provided and please ask for additional details for clarification.
