Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a bunch of Windows 7 laptops connected to WiFi (WPA2 PSK). When the user log-in, the connection is automatically created (the connection profile is saved). But when the user logs out, the connection automatically closed. Is there any way to keep the connection (until somebody connects to different network)?

Is it possible to use this connection before anyone is loged in? So that the users can be verfified in the domain by the wireless network? –  user192348 Oct 2 '13 at 12:16
same issue, did you find an answer? –  Damainman Feb 11 at 18:44
Not directly. After some update or something it started working itself. :\ –  cincura.net Feb 12 at 7:10

If the network connection has been saved for 'All Users' then it should connect when the wireless is enabled, regardless of whether anyone is logged on.

If you open the network and sharing center, go into Manage Wireless Networks, right-click the network and choose properties, you'll see the 'Network Availability' - is that set to All Users?

Yes, double checked, 'All Users'. –  cincura.net Apr 3 '12 at 16:10
