    Wireless logins

    I have just installed a new server and rebuilt 60+ PCs to new domain/image and all is fine. The issue I have is with the 34 new laptops the school have required. They have gone over to a managed wireless solution (ruckus) and i tested a pupil login on the laptops side by side (1 wireless, 1 hard wired) and the wired logged in straight away however the wireless took around 1.5/2 mins to login!!

    This was only one laptop and is way too long, can anyone help with a solution as to speed the logins up when login in via wireless. The pupils do not have individual logins but by class name so there are around 12/14 accounts.

    Many thanks

    how big are the profiles that the pupils get as this can slow the login times by a massive amount?

    do you use roaming profiles or mandatory?

    redirect start menu application data?

    The account I tested was 34mb and took an age to login via wireless. I have desktop redirected via GPO and my docs redirected via AD \\servername\share\%username% I have not set anything for profiles so I presume they are local? Any help/advice would be great as I cannot have the login times for 1 laptop at this lenggth as if all 34 login together which they will it will take all week!! lol

    im no expert so if anyone else can add anything. RUCKUS PEOPLE

    couple of questions so everyone can help


    what operating system are you using
    What make and model of laptops have you got?
    Drivers for the lan upto date?
    Ruckus upto date?





    it does sound to me like a profile size issue

    34mb is quite large for a profile i would say anyway (Dont flame me everyone)as our user profiles are 1.5mb pupils and 2mb for teachers.

    if you go on your server and find one of you users in active directory and right click then properties

    under the profile tab what does it say?

    http://www.computeronlinetips.com/im...r_profiles.gif

    is it something like this

    look in the folder that the profile path says and see what size of profile the user is trying to pull down.


    if anyone can add anything please post

    I have not got profiles setup in AD so it is blank.

    Server is 2008
    Laptops are DEll Vostro 150***
    All latest updates applied when building image
    Ruckus was preconfigured by supplier so I dont think that is the issue.

    Something has just dawned on me that I will try 1st thing tomorrow. My DHCP is on the admin server but I point DNS to my curric server with static to pick up redirections, policies etc but I have not entered WLAN with a static DNS???

    But even so I am wondering why the prfiles are so big on a new build/image

    Will report back atomorrow

    Thanks
