We have users with laptops.

When users are using the laptops on battery they are having issues with WiFi not working. A solution we found is putting the wireless adapter to maximum performance when on battery in power management.

We also disabled to allow the computer to turn off the wireless adapter to save power (screenshot attached)

The users who we have made changes for are no longer experiencing wifi dropping when they are on batteries

How do we deploy something through group policy to make those changes apply to everyone in the company.

Thank You,

Here is a link to a script you can modify and push out to your wireless clients using gpo or startup scripts in AD.
