Win 98SE Startup Logon Problem

All our Win 98SE had the startup logon problem when we migrated to Cisco 1240AP. Previously, we don't had this problem when we are still using the SMC AP.

When we want to login to windows 2000 Domain during startup, the system will complain that it can't find a DC and we had to click ok to proceed. Once login, we can see that it can detect the AP with good signal strength. Then we need to logoff and then only we can login to the Domain without any problem.

But when we restart the system to login to the Domain again, the same problem occurs. Only when you click ok to login without network and then logoff again to login without restart the system, then the PC can find the Domain and login without problem. All our PCs are using the static IP assignment with DNS and WINS configure.

We are currently using the DLink client wireless adapter and we had try to change to Belkin client wireless adapter with more recent Win98 driver but with the same problem.

Our Window XP don't had this issue. As i had said, previously when we are using a SMC AP, we don't had this problem.

Anyone here had the same problem that had a solution ?

Re: Win 98SE Startup Logon Problem

I think the server has to be in the same domain


Re: Win 98SE Startup Logon Problem

Yes. The solution was to upgrade to upgrade the customer's laptops to WinXP.

(Drive mappings were also a related issue).
