Hi, I'm having the following issue, Users authenticated via PEAP for getting WLAN access, do not run Microsoft Active Directory Login Scripts, because when they enter their computers once they don't have network yet, and only after loading their profile they get network connectivity.

How do you circunvented this issue? how to make sure users do run the login-scripts?

You need to support Machine Authentication.

Enabling Machine Authentication will allow the Machine to receive an IP address, and subsequently download domain policies (etc..) BEFORE a user even logs in.

When a user does eventually log in, your user will behave in exactly the same experience as over the wire, ie, scripts will run, profile will download, mapped drives will appear and so on...

We apply a batch script to run once wireless connectivity is established. We're using the Intel PROSet software on our client Dell laptops. There is an option within the Wireless LAN Profiles to start an application upon connection. Profiles > 'your profile' > Properties > Advanced > Start Application. Place your batch script that executes drive mappings, etc...

Question on the machine authentication. Are you referring to the option under the windows wireless profile on the laptop?

We use that but all we get is the cached login creditentials and user profiles but no login scripts run.

Is there something else I am missing?

We have had success with the Funk and Meeting house client though.
