I have a Dell E6430 ATG with an embedded Novatel wireless card on a the Verizon network.
The problem is I need to always have the wireless card establish a connection to the Verizon Network upon initial boot up and BEFORE to the user(s) log in. They need to use a fingerprint reader to authenticate to the domain and the VPN can't make a secure connection unless the connection has already been established.
There many articles about establishing a connecting before log on but they involve getting the Wireless profile and adding it to the registry... entries in the GPO... using Netsh wlan show profile, configuring Dell Mobile Broadband Cards to Auto-Connect Using NDIS in Windows etc... but none of them work.
There has to be a way of starting the Novatel modem and establishing a connection before the user logs in!
I also looked is there a way to have the Dell mobile broadband utility 3.0 instead of the Novatel utility connect to the Verizon network on boot prior to user log on but so luck?
I'm missing something, this can't be that hard or impossible.HELP!
