I've implemented the following Group Policy settings to allow non-admins to install printer drivers and to enable / disable their wifi:
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network Connections -> Ability to Enable/Disable a LAN connection
Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation -> Allow non-administrators to install drivers for these device setup classes
In both scenarios I still get a UAC prompt, but this can then be filled in with the non-admin user's credentials - so the setting does work, but we get an unexpected UAC prompt and it is not intuitive that the user needs to enter their user credentials in the box that says 'Enter an administrator password...'
Is this expected behaviour? Is there a way of supressing these UAC prompts?
(I'm aware of the setting for suppressing UAC prompts for point and print, I'm not concerned with point and print at the moment)
