Connect Automatically setting, can it me enforced via GPO or registry setting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a number of Windows 8 and 8.1 tablets that use 3G to connect to our corp network.  We woudl like to make sure this connection has the "Connect Automatically" setting enabled.  I am using the Group Policy Manager on a Windows 2012 server and can't see tha tit can be changed, but does anyone know the registry path for this as I can then use the GPO to replace this setting?

  • Hi,

    You can use the software for 3G to connect automatically.

    If you use a registry setting to enforce it ,you can use tool to caputre the key.

    But we cannot connect automatically.

    So,I suggest you use third-party software for 3G manufacturer.

  • It seems to use Windows 8 to connect automatically and once connected it stays like that which is good.  I used Procmon to see what registry setting might get changed, but it is impossible to find as a 2 second run shows 100s of lines of info.

    Time to give up on this.

  • Hi,

    I suggest you use Regshot tool to compare the registry setting .

  • Regshot was much better, but still could not find it, maybe it is a file change instead?  Is there a similar tool for file changes?

  • hello TB303,

    I have the same case and looking to find registry key/settings that allow to force auto-connect/roaming connection on mobile connection.

    Did you find the keys ?
