One wireless NIC, office and home networks

By sho_0ff ·
I have a laptop with a built in 802.11g NIC. I connect to my office domain and my home domain using this card. Currently I boot my laptop and go to the system properties and change the domain, depending on my location. Can this type of process be handled with the use of hardware profiles?

both networks use DHCP and the same encryption methods, but different domain names and wireless SSID's.

If i get your question properly;

Use window setup for the NIC, you can define prefered networks, set up both the home and work, set them to connect automatically when in range, shoudl sort it all out for you.

really a windows domain issue

by sho_0ff In reply to

I dont have any difficulties connecting to the WAP. I am looking for an easy way to select which domain to connect during boot. Currently after I boot the laptop I go into the system properties and change which domain I connect with. Reboot and I am there. I was assuming that I can change which domain to connect with by a drop down box when I enter in my ID and password, but not the case?

Have you tried looking at the permissions on netlogon.ftl so you can see all domains?
