How to restrict users from connecting to public networks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to restrict users from connecting to wireless networks that do not require a password (Public).

    I understand that you can set certain wireless profiles in Group Policy, but that requires us to know ALL of the networks that would be connected to in the future.

    Based on your description, are you trying to block users connect to some specific wireless networks?
