Wireless network connection not established before user login

Hi,

I manage MS Windows server 2003 SP1 based domain, inhabited by MS Windows XP
SP2 clients. These clients connect to the domain via wireless network cards
and access points (D-Link).

The problem I have is that my client computers seem to initialize their
network connection only after user credentials are supplied, not before. As
far as I know this is not the intended behavior. Thus computer policies, such
as computer sortware assignment, are not applied, even after user logs in.

Thanks for any information.

There is a Microsoft wireless newsgroup where you may want to post this
question. Not all wireless equipment is equal and some works better than
others when used in a domain environment where computer policy needs to be
applied at startup ideally. --- Steve

Microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless. If you are using Outlook
Express or such create a newsgroup account for news.microsoft.com . You
don't need an account/password to use it just make sure the account you
create is using news.microsoft.com as the server name. I had to create a
newsgroup account since my ISP newsgroup account does not have a lot of the
Microsoft newsgroups. The link below may help. --- Steve

We had a similar situation wirh Cisco Aironet Wireless PCI NIC's and solved
the problem by updating the drivers from the Cisco site.
I'm lead to believe this is the case with many Cisco and other vendor
wireless NIC's.
