"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You won't find it in Local Policies. This is the part of Group Policies.

The thing you want to achieve can be done on router or wireless controller by restricting the MAC address.
Also if you won't tell the password to the client, he won't connect.
You need to run two commands from an elevated command prompt:

1) Allow the network you want to allow:
netsh wlan add filter permission=allow ssid="YOUR SSID HERE" networktype=infrastructure

Open in new window

2) Block all other networks:
netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure

Open in new window

Hopefully your user either doesn't have admin rights or isn't savvy enough to figure out what you've done.
