Hi all,

one of my customer use about 10 DELL latitude, all identical (Windows 7 64b). One of them has got this problem from the beginning he starts using (one year ago...) :
In the company, there are two wifi networks, one for invitees, and one for employees.

He warns me that his laptop is connecting always on invitees one.
So, when we select the employees wifi network, the WPA passphrase is requested, but never kept.
When he comes back home, same problem : to connect to his home wifi, he has to type in WEP passphrase...
And when he comes back to work, laptop connects to the invitees wifi...

I have already uncheck "Connect automatically", deleted the invitees wifi network... but nothing changes.

Have you got any idea to solve this issue ?

thanks in advance for your feedback,

Seb

Can you check any LAN/Wireless NIC utility software installed like Intel PROSet manager. If yes, use the utility to configure the wireless.

You can also go to "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces\". You will find XML files under the sub-folders named with GUID. First connect to the wireless with the WPA passphase and then make the XML file read-only.

 One of the main issues with network wires is that you never have enough.  You run plenty and plan for the worst case but you still end up needing more.  What many people do not realize is with 10BaseT and 100BaseT (but not 1000BaseT) networks you …
