Admin rights for Users to setup WiFi connections

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?VG9kZA==?=, Feb 4, 2007.

  1. I have an local IT policy in my company, that users cannot belong to the
    local administrators group on their PC's. That is fine while the user is at
    the office, But if the users travels and and needs to setup a wireless
    connection to another network(Hotel Room, Home Office, etc..) They will need
    to be an admin to setup there wireless connection on there laptop. Does
    anyone have a good solution that they would recommend to give the user
    temporary admin rights to setup the wireless connection? This would be the
    only application that they would need to run as a local admin.

    Since this is a local IT policy, they should not enforce it on users they
    are unable to support while they are on travel.
    As a workaround, they can let you to create a local admin account.
