XP, restict to one SSID only

Does anyone know of a way to lock Windows XP down to the Corporate SSID only?

We don't want users going home and using either their own, or any ol' hot spot.
Windows 7 and Vista can use an AD GPO to simply do this.

I've rinsed Google trying to find a solution.
(Apart from more expensive software)

Surely this can't be that hard? Has anyone cracked this?

You can use a Windows XP AD Group Policy object that cannot be changed by regular users. I'm not sure in detail how to do this, but have configured that accidentally for sure...

Hugh,

Apparently on Server 2003+ with XP on SP2+ this link may provide some help: http://www.petri.co.il/working_with_wireless_gpo_settings_from_xp_sp2.htm

Haven't done this myself, so I can't verify the results.

Cheers,
Joshua

Teleworkers using RAP-2

Sounds like you are a good candidate to field some RAP-2's at home so your users can still use their laptops in the family room, even though you have their laptop locked down to the Corporate SSID.
