    Do you hide the SSID on the Access Points ? There is a tick box to say "connect even if SSID is not being broadcast".

    True but had I bought the odessey client back when we first had wireless laptops it would have paid for itself after all the time I've spent trying to get windows to work properly on its own.

    No I'm not hiding the SSID.

    I've been experimenting with BIOS and got some results.

    The BIOS controlls the Wireless card, options as follows
    Always on
    Always off
    Controlled by LAN cable
    Controlled by button.

    When set to Always on or Controlled by LAN cable, I have problems.

    Using Controlled by button, and manually activating wireless as soon as the BIOS splashscreen goes, I can log on to the domain no probem. The event log shows that the wireless service is the first entry into the log at startup.
