GP settings for Network Adapter settings

Hi all,

Is there a way to deploy settings via Group Policy to client laptops to ensure the Power Management settings for the Wireless Adaptor stay on "Maximum Performance". I understand I would probably need to control this via Group Policy Preferences?

Also would an easier way to do this just be deploy the Maximum Performance power plan to clients by default?

You may be able to do this with Group Policy Preference Item Level Targeting -

Hi Brad,

I will have a look tomorrow but i'm not confident it would work. Also it would need to be deployed by Loopback processing as its a user side policy and we would need to apply this to laptops.

With Item Level Targeting you can apply the GPP to portable computers only -

I've done this a different way. I've just set High Performance as default via GP and then amended the settings within that Power Plan respectively. Atleast this way the Wireless adaptor is set to High Performance.
