Learn about Wireless Network Group Policy
What are the different Wireless Network Group Policies. What is the procedure to define the preferred wireless networks in Group Policy?
The monitoring of the wireless networks for Group Policies are not available with the Windows system until the Windows Server 2008. Windows Server 2008 enables the wireless network Group Policy settings. The option can thus be operated on Windows XP, Windows Vista Operating Systems. Various wireless network Group Policies can be configured and can define preferences. The Group Policy editor window helps users in managing the various wireless networks for the Group Policies. Wireless network (802.11) policies are the standard for the policies and the user can manage the wireless network policies under the above option. The settings for the wireless network Group Policies are not default options and hence the user should configure the various options manually.
