    Wireless PC's and profiles

    Right, different issue to other thread.

    Gave up on Buffalo and have stuck bog standard AP in its place for now....but im having different issues.

    When logging on i get a warning that the domain cannot be found so i dont think the PC is connecting straight away to the AP.

    I log on as Administrator i can connect to the ap, its at full strength.

    So i log off and log on as student or staff and get that it cannot find my profile, then moans it cant find a local one. It logs me in but with no policies in place. The internet works fine and connection to the server works fine but they have access to everything....

    so basically 2 issues. Not connecting straight away to AP and then not downloading profiles from the server.

    Help please...

    I know, I had this before, double check where the student / staff profiles are connecting to, just mean where its trying to connect to on the server the profile isnt there

    it would be in your Active Directory, go to the properties of a users and check their "Profile Path" :"Mine is \\curricsvr1\Profiles$\MandatoryProfile2" and double check that folder where the Profile is held has the correct permissions for it.

    Hi,

    You are using the Windows to control the wireless card in the laptop aren't you? Most 3rd party ones won't do pre-log on authentication unless told too.

    In your AD have you got the Laptops in their own OU and if so have you told them to wait for the network to be ready before logging on?

    try using use a local machine gpo of, Local Computer policy>Computer Configuration>Addministrative Templates>System>Logon>Always wait for the network at start up and logon. Enable this and that might just work

    As Tricky Dicky Said are you using windows to manage the wireless connection? Iíve come across allsorts of problems in the past when using the utilities from the makers of the wireless cards if not change that within the properties box for that connection, can you log on with a local Admin account and check to see if all is correct with itís ip address, if they are assigned via dhcp maybe try to give them a static address it could be that they arenít getting an address from your dhcp server for some strange reason. also see if you can browse to where the profiles are on your network. Hope this might be of some help Let's know how you get on

    I always use windows to control the wireless....third party ones do my nut in...there is a third party bit of software on there but when you access it it says that windows is in control.

    Thanks i shall have a look at the ip and maybe try the static ip address..

    Which 3rd party software is it?

    When you updated the GPOs did you run both a gpupdate on the server and then a few minutes later a gpupdate /force on the laptop? I always try and do this when I'm getting weird problems and always over a wired connection.

    I'd remove the 3rd party altogether, had similar issues with a laptop where the intel pro suite thing was still installed.

    Sounds like you're having fun with wireless this week though!

    If it is Intel, don't remove it altogether. In Add/Remove do a modify and just select to uninstall everything but the driver itself.

    Found that one out the 30 laptops later way....
