Disable Multiple Wifi connections seen and only connect to a single specific AP

I have four laptops at a auto dealership that I need to only be able to connect to a single speficied SSID, regardless of the other available APs that may or may not be seen.  Users continually connect to alternate AP's and I want to completely stop that from happening.. The users are local admins on their laptops and there is NO domain in place...

I don't need 100's of people telling me to take away rights... That is not what the question is about.. The users are not savy to to make those types of changes and only connect to other AP's because they are there... So I want to isolate their connection only to connect to 1 SSID only.

Please advise

The only sure answer to this is to use Group Policy.  If you don't have a domain that's not an option.

Really, you're asking for something that can't really be done without removing rights.  If users are local admins on the machines, unless you restrict rights you'll not achieve this.

If the WLAN NIC driver supports profiles you 'could' do it this way, but that would mean you'd have to configure the WLAN settings as the actual local administrator account and stop other users (be it local admins or not) from making changes.

I 'think' Intel ProSet will let you do this.  Other OEMs might bundle drivers and WiFi management apps which also let you do this.

I didn't think about the wireless driver for oem.. its Intel  so that is absolutely an appropriate and acceptable solution.  I will implement and followup.  Thank you many times over!
