WinXP Initial Connection - Can it connect PRIOR to user login?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGFsZQ==?=, Jul 13, 2005.

  1. Win XP Pro
    windows is managing the wireless and I have the order of preferred networks
    correct.

    What i would like to have happen is : when the laptop is powered on, prior
    to any user logging in, i would like for PC to make the wirless network
    connection. I have remote control software (ex:pC AnyWhere) running as a
    service on startup. With a standard lan connection I can remote in prior to
    anyone logging in, with the wireless, someone has to login before the
    wireless connection is made.

    Any & all suggestions appreciated!

  2. I am not sure if you can or cannot do this with the XP zero configuration
    (someone else may know) but you certainly can do it with the Funk Odyssey
    Client.

    You would have to pay for this, after a demo trial, but it can be set for
    the 'System/machine' to logon to the wireless network. This always happens
    before any user logs on. I have this running successfully, and with WPA2, on
    both XP Prof and 2000 Prof.

  3. Yes.

    The Windows Wireless Zero Configuration service establishes connection as
    soon as it loads. We load before the Winlogon event so this meets all of
    your requirements.
