We have a lot of laptops which we use an unattended installation to image. Everything works fine except that it is a lot of work to log into each laptop every time and connect it to the wireless as admin, because we work in a domain environment. My question is that is there a way to automate connection to the wireless, I'm running a mixture of xp and 2000. Thanks.

Hi there,

There is a GPO setting for Wireless Network that you could use to configure your clients.
This GPO setting is a bit special, you need to configure it from a DC (Domain Controller).
Otherwise this setting won't be visible.

If you are running from a DC you'll find the settings you need to modify here:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Wireless Network\General

Here you can configure what specific Wireless Network (SSID) your wireless clients should connect to.

Hope this helps you...
