Group Policy and Aironet Client

I am using version 2.6 of the driver to the adapter.

What am i doing wrong ?

Re: Group Policy and Aironet Client

If you want to use the Group Policy Delay parameter on the Profile Management (Security) window in ADU, you must install a Microsoft hot fix on computers running Windows 2000. The hot fix is incorporated into Windows XP Service Pack 2 and later.

The Group Policy Delay parameter enables you to specify how much time elapses before the Windows logon process starts Group Policy, a Windows feature used by administrators to specify configuration options for groups of users. The objective is to delay the start of Group Policy until wireless network authentication occurs. Follow the steps below to obtain and install the hot fix

Re: Group Policy and Aironet Client

Thanks for your answer.

The problem is that first i began with windows 2000 and tried to find the hotfix you specified but the hotfix didn't exist anymore.

Then i thought i should try windows xp with sp2 but this didn't work either.

The group policy delay parameter sims not to work.

I have tried many values of the delay.

Re: Group Policy and Aironet Client

I have now instead reinstalled the cisco client driver and choosed in the installation to use a "Third-Party tool".

And now i am using windows xp own security configuration.

Now the GPO's works perfectly.
