Wifi connection

Hi Everyone

Is this possible via GPO Server AD2008R2 to disconnect a user from any other network when they connect to my network internally.

Many Thanks

The job of group policy is to set policies for the domain users and restrict access to domain resources (file share, network printers hosted by the server, etc.) for AD users.

GPO won't check or care who's physically (or wirelessy) connected to your internal network.  It's not the job of a GP to restrict access to the physical network.http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28699635/Wifi-connection.html#

Clarification: AD/GPO can only be used to control computers joined to the domain not just any computer that happens to connect to your LAN.

Actually this is hard enough to accomplish for machines that are already domain connected.  You have to manually adjust the settings to get the LAN traffic prioritized over WLAN traffic by going to Network Connections under the Control Panel
Under the file menu, go to Advanced --> Advanced Settings
In the Adapters and Bindings tab, click on the connection you want prioritized (the ethernet LAN connection) and use the up arrow to move it to the top of the list.

There are ways to configure Wifi connections using AD (ref. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/gg266419.aspx)

After you extend the schema, you can configure a wireless network policy by following these steps:
Open the Active Directory GPO in the Group Policy Object Editor.
Expand Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, and then click Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies.
Right-click Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies and then click Create A New Windows Vista Policy. The Wireless Network Properties dialog box appears.
To add an infrastructure network, click Add and then click Infrastructure to open the Connection tab of the New Profile Properties dialog box. In the Network Names list, click NEWSSID and then click Remove. Then, type a valid internal SSID in the Network Names box and click Add. Repeat this to configure multiple SSIDs for a single profile. If the network is hidden, select the Connect Even If The Network Is Not Broadcasting check box.
On the New Profile Properties dialog box, click the Security tab. Use this tab to configure the wireless network authentication and encryption settings. Click OK.
These settings will configure client computers to connect automatically to your internal wireless networks and not to connect to other wireless networks.

I meant to say restrict access for NON DOMAIN users.
