    All I did was use the GP to add the users (teachers group) to the "Network Configuration Operators" group on the laptops. This allows them to add/remove wireless networks etc for home use.

    Good to hear you got it all going in the end and your system of local/server profile is interesting and something that I had not cconsidered and may have to implement myself. Loopback policies are fine if they are working for you so no dissapointment here .

    The wineing only lasts a little while for most users especially when they are gently 'reminded' that their laptop has been working for 3,6,12,++ months without any major incidents requireing it to be rebuilt (short of neglegant damage).

    Cheers, i thought it might have been as simple as that group, will have to do that then

    I'm going to make sure to get the head on our side before i start doing it to teachers laptops, that way if any complain i'll just go for the route of explaining that it's been approved by SLT that this is to be done etc.

    The server/local profile route i think is the only way i was ever going to get it working properly and effectivly without changing the teachers from mandatory network profiles, i don't think i'd ever get it working any other way with mandatory profiles.
