802.1X Wireless Authentication in a Windows Environment

February 10, 2014 0 Comments windows

Recently came across an issue where users in an 802.1x wireless environment were logging into their laptops, and the AD logon script would run before they had wireless network connectivity.  This was a problem since their network drives would not map.

While the users blamed the wireless network, the problem is actually resolved in AD Group Policy by specifying the order of operations for wireless authentication/user logon/domain logon.  Technet has a great article on how to resolve this issue: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2007.11.cableguy.aspx
