    Wireless, Windows and Winsuite

    I have a strange problem that only shows up occasionally, and randomly.
    There are around 30 Tosh. Sat pro L20's, running XP pro and Winsuite3.51.
    The problem is that sometimes users cannot log on. The error message is that the domain is unavailable.
    The only fix that I have managed is to log on locally, uninstall winsuite, remove from the domain, rejoin the domain, reinstall winsuite and away we go.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and is there a better/quicker fix?
    Many thanks for any help

    check your access point.

    We had that problem, I swapped our AP and the above problem stopped.

    Thanks ChrisP,

    Unfortunately that means all the AP's (6) as this happens in different areas and so different Access Points are involved, they are also less than a year old ( Netgear Prosafe WG302's) and paired for failover.

    Re: Wireless, Windows and Winsuite

    Are the laptops wireless? It could be that a driver for a wireless card is not running correctly and causing the laptop to not recieve an IP address when it is turned on; it could also be that turning on all 30 laptops is causing too much traffic through a WAP at one time - a problem which we are experiencing right now.

    At my school we had the same problem with Winsuite, albeit with fewer laptops (approx 15). In the end we scrapped Winsuite altogether and went with making our own profiles using offline files/synchronisation and policies in gpedit/regedit. This decision was helped by the fact that Winsuite is no longer going to be supported or updated, resulting in a "get out while you can!" feeling.

    Good luck with solving the problem.

    Pete

    When you logon locally, can you connect successfully to the wireless network?
