    You will notice that that fix has been suggested many times before in these forums. I personally add it to my images when doing laptop roll outs as I find that forcing a bit of a wait during startup sorts out picking up the GPOs over wireless.

    Don't forget to try a manual IP if that doesn't work.

    My sincerest apologies!

    I had to test out the fix in 3 different year groups then the ICT Coordinator got a hold of the netbook and wanted to test it for herself.. then an electrician came to look at our smartboard that was receiving electrical interference from someplace...

    sufficed so say my 2 minutes turned into quite a long time =-)

    Anyways, to the point, the fix seemed to work ok, the logon takes a bit longer, maybe 45 seconds or so after hitting enter for the username and password to be accepted and begin the profile creation etc

    but it works, we're going to look at replacing the 5 points we have with some new ones so that will hopefully mean a quicker logon but hey, it works now so thank you very much!

    thats good

    have you tried a firmware update recently on the AP's it might help
    the time seems a little long for a logon have you tried changing the AP's channel to see if that speeds things up
    try netstumbler on a laptop and see exactly what wireless signals are around your area.
    you might have some rogue ap

    glad the .reg fix helped

    Yea all the points have had the latest firmware put on them, they are also all on channel 6

    There are a couple of ap's around that are from the nearby houses but the machines arent configured to connect to those

    Shouldn't they been on non-overlapping channels instead such as 1, 5, 11 or possibly 1, 5, 9, 13? I always thought that APs should have the same SSID but be on different channels to avoid conflicts. I'm definitely no expert on wireless though!

    At school 1 i have 3 wireless points on the same channel with the same ssid and from what i can see they connect to whichever point is giving out the best signal and stuff, hence my frustrations cause everything is running fine at that school but not this one =-)

    Someone else setup another school i work at with the same channels and ssid and they have around 30 laptops and about 10 or so waps and they have zero issues too so i suppose its something ill have to test =-)

    i would have all your aps on different channels unless they are very far apart to stop interference

    to test this

    turn off all the APs except the one closest to you and try the startup login procedure on the lappys

    do you have a speed difference?

    the reason i say this is because i had 3 dell APs here all setup correctly different channels etc

    plug 2 in on the network all is well fast connections etc plug three in and the whole wireless network slowed down to a crawl displaying the symptoms you described in your first post.

    slow logons over a minuite to download a 1 meg profile sluggish performance.

    worth a try mate.


    keep it simple test each AP on its own to see if one is causing a problem.

    ah well thats my 2 pence worth.

    i better get back to trying to install corel draw x4 on 20 laptops but the installer makes the laptops BSOD thats impressive.

    Hi guys, apologies for bringing an old thread back up.

    I am having some issues with the wireless points again, we are looking at getting some wg602 netgear points so they will hopefully resolve the issues.

    Tried downloading the net stumbler thing but when i go into one of the units where the wap is, netstumbler says there are no ap's available.

    When i get the new waps im going to use alternate channels like you guys mentioned earlier in the thread

    Have you checked what driver/ network card that netstumbler is trying to use? It is in the menu bar at the top.

    Yea, its cool got it sorted, netstumbler doesnt like 7 yet from what i can see, compatibility didnt work either, i pulled out one of the netbooks and stuck it on there.

    Not really that clued up on wireless terminology but i went into a couple of rooms, heres what i found:

    The current wireless points (1 per unit) were all on channel 6. Lots of unknown Ap's from outside the school, bt homehubs and talktalk hubs etc all on channel 1. The waps in the units ranged from -21 average signal to -85 in the opposite end of the unit.

    One thing i did notice, when i was about 10 meters away from one of the points, i was only getting around 40k/sec download speeds, think i should run some tests to see how fast the waps are running?
