Wireless before Login RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have seen somethings related to this - but never a true fix..   I have windows 7 machines that have a piece of software for remote management installed on them.   All of these computers connect via wireless - with a saved profile - so when a user logs in - it automatically connects..   The issue is, if no one is logged into the machine - the wireless (hardware is turned on) - is not connected..   I cannot seem to find anywhere - how to have the wireless connect pre-login (domain or locally)..  Has anyone had any luck with this?   I have to imagine this is possible.  My XP machines do not have this issue...

  • Could you please share the steps you took to delete the wireless profile and create a new one?  I have VPN users who need to be able to have a wireless network available for start before login to work.  Thanks for your help.

  • Feel free to check out this delete wireless network profile article to delete the profile, after that create a new one manually or by connecting PC to wireless network. 

    Hope this helps.

    These instructions worked on Windows 7 Pro Dell Latitude E5450 laptop.

    Had to delete and readd the profile (while WiFi adapter was disabled)
