GPO "Wait for network" Windows 2008 using wireless
Posted on 2011-09-07
I have a laptop running Windows 7 Pro connecting via wireless. I know that when I had a Windows 2003 domain that you could set the machine policy to wait until a network connection before logging on. I had a laptop running xp that connected wireless. It would pause, connect, then login to the network. I now have a Windows 2008 AD and I am running Windows 7 on the laptop. I have this same setting enabled in AD but the laptop is logging into windows before the wireless has connected. I need to know what settings in my GPO that i need to set to guarantee that the laptop will wait until it is connected before logging into windows. Any help would be appreciated.
