    Hi all

    Does anyone know if is possible to connect to a wireless network by using a service?

    At the moment my workstations only connect to the network when a user logs onto the machine. Is it possible to make windows connect without a user logging on.

    I am running Windows XP and Netgear adapters.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I'm not sure I fully understand. You can set XP to just boot up and go (no login).

    There are tools/network cards that use remote wake-on-lan which allows them to be booted up remotely with no user present. (edit: sorry, that requires wires)

    Or is it something else?
