    The problem is not with Static vs Dynamic IPs, the problem is that you
    need to configure the ProSet client to use Pre-Logon services. I actually
    prefer using the Wireless Zero Configuration from WindowsXP as a
    wireless client. It allows network connection before a desktop login.

    Re: Wi-Fi

    I'm having the same issue...

    Win XP Pro SP2 with client 4.91
    Dell Latitude D600 with Intel PRO wireless 2200BG (centrino)

    How do you configure for pre-logon services? Is it in the wireless
    configuration or the novell client configuration?

    Thanks in advance!

    To add...
    If I disable the wireless adapter in one hardware profile the login is
    quick. However, if it's a hardware profile where the wireless adapter is
    enabled...it takes 2 minutes until the login box pops up. Is there a way
    to set which adapter the client searchs first?

    It sounds like you might actually be talking about a different issue
    that the original poster in this thread.

    The original issue here is that the Novell login dialog could be seen,
    but the user must login "Workstation Only" and wait a bit before
    attempting to actually login to eDirectory/NetWare.

    Your description sounds as though you're observing the issue where you
    cannot even _see_ the Novell login dialog until after a longer than
    usual delay.

    This latter issue has been observed and reported several times, and
    unfortunately seems to have several different causes. Having the
    Microsoft "Wireless Zero Configuration" service disabled was one
    cause, and is described in TID10099173:

    After pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL there is a 2 minute delay before the
    NWGINA appears. - TID10099173
    http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/se...i?10099173.htm

    Another poster here attributed this to having ISS (www.iss.net)
    software installed, and simply removing and re-installing that product
    ended up eliminating the issue.

    Note this isn't a matter of the "Novell client trying to connect/use a
    specific adapter first". There aren't any connections made or
    required in order to simply present the Novell Client login dialog.
    (True statement for NT/2000/XP; was a different story on Windows 9x
    and earlier.)

    Several of the posters to this newsgroup used the Microsoft BootVis
    utility and identified that when the "delay" was occurring, there was
    a call down into MRXSMB.SYS (redirector Microsoft's Client for
    Microsoft Networks) that took 120+ seconds to complete. No idea what
    exactly the Microsoft client is doing on waiting on during this time.

    Re: Wi-Fi

    Thanks guys for the tips. I do have the M$ zero config turned off and
    don't have the MS network client installed. I'll check out the TID and
    see if that helps.

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Re: Wi-Fi

    Unfortunately the other poster's workaround of reinstalling said
    IPS/firewall turned out to be a temporary fix. After a few weeks BootVis
    started to show a 65 delay with mrxsmb.sys again even with the software
    removed. Until it can be reimaged and being that disabling the Microsoft
    client is not enough to prevent its driver from being delayed, removing the
    Microsoft client is the current workaround.
