I thought that was a Windows setting. I do not see such a setting in Access Connections V5.62. Please let us know what version you are using, and also, where specifically you see the setting (what Access Connections screen).   ... Thinkpads_User

I did that (checked all possible settings). I think that setting may be gone. What version are you using and can you try a newer version?  .... Thinkpads_User

Thanks. I had an issue with V5.72 for Windows 7 64-bit, so I reverted to V5.62 plus a patch and that version does not have the Windows Login setting.

Generally (Access Connections aside), the Windows Domain kicks in before Wireless can. So the Domain connection will fail.

I think that setting is to work out connection in advance of domain in the background.  Try unsetting the connection and see what happens in your domain environment.

If you are not on a domain, you do not need the setting.

The Access Connections profiles are in:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles\{.........}

The Access Connections options are in:

HKCU\Software\Lenovo\AccessConnections\Options

1. These locations may be different for you.
2. I do not recommend changing the registry for stuff like this.
3. The same information may reside in more than one key.
4. The options variable is probably a binary number with single on/off variables. You would need an Access Connections designer to tell you how to construct that.

That is about all I can do (or probably anyone can do)  ... Thinkpads_User

Hello supportAB - Any followup?  I am pretty sure the locations above are correct (I found them on my own machine).  ... Thinkpads_User
