Wireless laptops in the domain disconnect and try to re-authenticate

Unanswered Question


I have a wireless setup that is using WLSM in a 6500 switch which is also acting as WDS.

The problem that am encountering is that wireless laptops that are not in the domain are working

perfectly without any issues,they can roam without dropping the wireless LAN connection while

laptops that are joined in the domain are dropping the wireless connection and get stuck while trying

to re-authenticate.

Your help will be highly appreciated.



I have this problem too.

Just a stab in the dark here, but maybe your group policies are effecting your laptops local firewall and blocking something on the WiFi card which cuases them to get bumped off the WiFi.

Connect those laptops hard wired to the domainand force an update using gpupdate /force, after all is done and logged out with group policy, then try the WiFi connection again.

Hope this helps...
