Wireless access permissions

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWFya2tra2t5IE1hcms=?=, Dec 17, 2006.

  1. I have set up my laptop with a number of user accounts. I have since set up a
    wireless router for my interent connection. When I look at network
    connections on the laptop it shows the wireless connection and when logged in
    as admin if I right click on this connection it gives me the enable option.
    However, if logged in as a non admin user the enable option is greyed out and
    the wireless connection can not be used.
    I would be very grateful for any advise.

    This is the correct, normal behavior of Windows.
    Only admin can enable or disable network adapters.
    If you need to use the wireless, just leave it enabled so it can be used.
