UAC required for standard acccounts connecting to wifi

Hello,
 For some reason, I cant remember if it was before or after the 8.1 update windows now requires UAC every time it connects to a network. This means my workers that move around a lot have to enter this for every network they connect to. I cant seem to find anything anywhere about disabling this. This only happens for standard users but you would think it would let a standard user connect to a network on their own.

Any ideas?

Chris

I believe this only occurs when the domain account is tied to the Windows Live account.  If you unlink them the issue should resolve itself.  This is a known bug in Win 8, I am sure a patch will come out at some time soon.

As mentioned above it's a bug/bad design from MS
There is a workaround go into the Metro settings / Sync. Uncheck Save Passwords
