This will connect prelogon using the administrator tool, but assigns a 162 range IP, whereas we use 172, which is the range the wireless points also use. This still doesn't allow domain users to logon - gives the no logon servers available error, as it's not yet connecting properly.
Okay - update - I've just noticed the wireless light flashes orange before the bios screen, then doesn't come on again until it's after the logon when it flashes green. there's no settings I can see in the bios to do with the wireless, it's a very limited bios.
Yes we do...

Does anyone have any laptops with Centrino Advanced-N 6200 that are ok on their network?
We have 6 Samsung 400B's that use that card. We have a ruckus wireless managed soloution. We had an issue with those cards that using WPA2 and AES they would connect but there was little or no data throughput. We changed it to TKIP and everything works. There was a page about it on the Intel site. I will see if I can find it. But that is not really the issue you have.
Have you downloaded the latest drivers from RM or even Intel?
Yes we have the latest drivers from Intel, I requested drivers from RM and they sent out a man with a new motherboard, although I did get him to flash the BIOS while he was here. Does your wireless light come on when windows gets to the logon screen or only after the user is logged on like ours do?
What APs do you have. Is their firmware up to date?
Have you tried enabling the High Performance power profile in windows?
What channel are they on?
Have you ried a completely clean install of W7 with just the drivers? Have you tried the factory installed image?
What do you see if you enable WLAN logging (Using the Windows 7 Event log to check WLAN Link Quality « Anything about IT)
What APs do you have. Is their firmware up to date? We use D-Link DWL-2200, and I don't think this is going to be the issue as there's no problem getting connected once we're logged on and the wireless decides to take some power and turn itself on.
Have you tried enabling the High Performance power profile in windows? Yes
What channel are they on? we alternate 1, 6 and 11 in adjacent locations
Have you ried a completely clean install of W7 with just the drivers? yes
Have you tried the factory installed image? yes, this was the first instance
What do you see if you enable WLAN logging...I'll check now
Did you get anywhere with this?
We bought 20 odd RM Value 220's and we're having exactly the same problem. We're running CC4 on XP clients.
A 162 IP is a link local address meaning that DHCP isn't getting a chance to run. Usually this is because of a buggy driver and it requires the DHCP media sense to be turned off. This however leads to a 60 second wait on startup as the machine can no longer tell when the wireless connection is fully connected.

The key is:
From the website : How to disable the Media Sensing feature for TCP/IP in Windows
- Start Registry Editor.
- Locate the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet \Services\Tcpip\Parameters
- Add the following registry entry to theParameters
Data type: REG_DWORD (Boolean)
Note This entry controls the behavior of Media Sensing. By default, Media Sensing events trigger a DHCP client to take an action. For example, when a connect event occurs, the client tries to obtain a lease. When a disconnect event occurs, the client may invalidate the interface and routes. If you set this value data to 1, DHCP clients and non-DHCP clients ignore Media Sensing events.
- Restart the computer.
