How Can Iblock domain computers from connecting to non-approved networks if approved networks are available. Would like to exclude IT machines or logons from this restriction.
The goal is to avoid having users connect to our guest networks accidentally, which happens fairly often, but allow them to use their own wireless at home or on the road.

Using the WPAD for proxy but the enforcement may not be fullproof

http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/forefrontsecurity/archive/2011/03/16/how-to-use-your-corporate-proxy-when-you-are-connected-with-directaccess.aspx

But it suggested use of proxy gateway and an agent to be "enforcing" the client machine policy thru GPO (see below). Making sure user does not have admin right.

How will prevet them from accessing the Guest Wireless network(which is open security) when the production wireless is in range, but still allow connection to any outside wireless network?
Would Different IP Scopes on the Wireless networks be a better option as most facilities are recieving their guest wireless via DSl while the production network is on MPLS?

There is domain GPO doing the blacklist and whitelist of ssid. it will not be all encompassing but minimally assure wireless to specific ap.

the 802.1x is also another option but it is not possible for home user and more with enterprise infra or after vpn is established. to stop the initial wireless connection will not be 100% though
