Wireless conect to network before log on.
Hopefully this is a simple one for people.
We have just installed some Netgear wireless AP around school. We have got 40 netgear N300 Wireless usb adapters.
Just to make things worse we have a mix of windows 7 and xp computers. And run a Ranger network.
The problem is how do I get the computer with the dongle in to connect to the network?
I cant log on to the computer as it has no network connection.
I have moved the computer win7 so i could plug it in to a patch cable then use the software to find the wireless network and connect. I even set it to connect before log on which worked. Moved it to the place where it should be turned it on and it worked.. the user logged on ok then all the icons disappeared due to it losing the connection ( which will be a problem) refreshing the desktop brought the icons back.
Next day the computer would not connect looked like the dongle was not connecting at start up?
Any ideas on how to solve this.
