    First of all I apologize if I am posting something that has been already
    answered, I just cannot find that thread.

    I am trying to connect a laptop running XP Pro to a network running Server
    2003. I am trying to get the wireless laptop be able to login to the server
    and get access to network resources but the problem is that the wireless
    connects to the network only after the user has typed in name and password
    and logged in without authenticating. By that time, the server doesn't even
    know that user exists because it never got the connection attempt and so it
    doesn't share internet or network resources with the user. Can someone
    please help me get the laptop to connect to the network before or at the
    same time that it is authenticating with the server? The wireless card is a
    Linksys wpc54g. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
