Windows 7: Network Adaptor settings and normal Users

Have had a look at that, no dice doesn't work, I have set it in the main Local GPO area, and the sub Non-admin GPO and it still escalates to Admin, which I don't want

You made the changes and then did a complete POWER OFF and ON?? Just making the changes in many cases in not enough you must Power Cycle.

While I did not power it off I did a full restart, although I could have a go at doing a total shutdown not sure if that would change anything.

Does anyone know how Network adaptor runs? Can you run it as a task in admin mode on startup?

A full restart should be good enough, but on the small chance I would power cycle. Policies can be tricky.

Can you give me a screen shot of the window you need the users to have access to??

It is basically the screen after this one when you want to go to properties, it will come up with UAC Escalation screen, asking for the admin password.

See the second doco. I just hunted around quickly for some pictures off the net, but the credential prompt basically just says the network adaptor instead of the console program as in that picture.

Try this software, I have used it before on Laptops and if I remember correctly it by-passes the need for Admin Rights???

It looks like Netsetman will cover this issue. NetSetMan - Network Settings Manager | LAN & WLAN | Freeware & Pro Just wondering what other security holes this may raise?

thanks

That is the chance you will have to take. It is not the best solution but it works. So far we have not had any issues with the software. Glad I could help out. -WS
