Wireless not letting Application to install

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by James Robetson, Aug 5, 2005.

  1. I have a Wireless infrastructure and have setup group policies to install
    applications. The Hard Wired side works fine but the Wireless tells me that
    it cannot contact the domain controller to install the Policy. Is there
    some slow link detection that I need to set up in my GPO to solve this
    problem? And if there is where and how should it be done? Any ideas would
    be a great help.

    Yes there was one well known issue with applying policies over WLAN.
    (I don't know the current state of this post SP2)
    The problem was that there is only a short time window when a machine can pull the
    policy from domain - something about 2 seconds. This is often not enough for WLAN.
    The link speed by itself is not a problem (though if it is below certain limit, the 2 sec.
    timeout can hit even a wired network)

  3. OK so is there a way to increase that time window to allow this to function
    correctly over the WLAN?

    From what I've heard for XP, this timeout is hardcoded and no known fix
