I have a Domain Controller (Windows Server 2003) and would like to know how to incoorperate my wireless network into the domain.

Such as having computers log into the domain before access the wireless network

Is there anything I can do on the domain controller to enter in those settings?

At the moment my computers are on a workgroup and just log in and access is granted to the internet through the wireless network.

I am only trying to find out if it can be done in a better way using the domain feature.

Thanks in advance
Richard

Hi, it's no different to been wired. If you change wireless PCs from workgroup to a domain they will have to log on to the domain first.

Thanks

I just wanted to ensure I know what to expect when I do add computers to the domain.

I don't have a copy of Vista that can be added to a domain so I will be using to Windows XP computers just to monitor and manage the accounts and get some needed practice.

Thanks for the information.

Don't forget that they need to be XP pro machines as XP home can not join a domain.
