Wireless connection before logon


I have a laptop (Latitude e4200) that logs into a domain, but Windows 7 seems not to connect to the wireless network before it logs on.

When i'm using a cable it works fine.

normally it isn't a problem but we are using a logon script what doenst work when we don't have a connection

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

If there is a wireless connection manager installed with your wireless adaptor drivers it can conflict with the Windows 7 wireless connection manager and cause erratic and slow connection problems. If there is one installed you should try to remove it from add/remove programs if you see it there.

Thanks for the reply!

We are using a connection manager from Dell, but this is necessary for our DockingStation Profiles (No hardware profiles in WIN7). but i will try to remove it and test it without the dell connection manager.
Then we know for sure the connection manager is the problem, thank you for your help.
