Disable logon when not connected to network
I have forgotten how or where in GP to do this.
I have 60 new laptops that sometimes don't logon to the wireless network immediately but users try to logon as soon as the dialog box appears. I need a way to stop logon unless wireless is connected, otherwise I get several calls a day asking why when we logon we dont have any network drives or the icons we usually do.

There is a group policy for this.
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Logon > Always wait for the neteork at computer logon and startup.
This will make it so the logon screen only appears when the network is connected properly. It also works better this way when updating group policies.

How do they manage to logon at all if there is no network connection available wired or wireless?
Mine just will not log them on at all.

When they are not connected to a network in any shape or form it tries to find the network, see if the WIFI is in the area if not show the logon screen.
In a nutshell if the network is there it waits until the machine is ready.

Thanks, I thought it would be a nice easy one
FN-GM: It logs them on locally, you probably have the option enabled that I have just asked about.
