    Wireless not enabled until after login - Windows XP

    I have a few Samsung NB30 Plus netbooks with Broadcom wireless devices in them and I'm coming across the old issue where the wireless connection isn't getting started until after the various other services, so the domain is unavailable when a user tries to log in.

    Does anyone have any hints as to a fix for this? Its rather a major issue!!

    How about the good old GPO: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\ "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon"

    If the wireless is definitely on before log on then try using the windows software for wireless. We had a laptop that first had it hard coded into the BIOS not to start wireless until after log on, needed a BIOS upgrade, and then using the manufacturers software it would only use wireless after log on as that was when the software loaded. Changed to Windows Zero Service (or something similar) and all was fine.

    Right, appears to be fixed. It turned out that it wasn't the wireless! It was in fact the domain account had gone a bit iffy, so it had to be deleted, dropped from the domain and rejoined.

    Cheers for the advice though guys!
