Connect Wifi before Windows Logon

Problem:  One user forgot his password.  The password was reset on the domain controller but not reflected to his notebook user profile.

Analysis:  It is because Wifi connection is not available until the user logon.  Therefore, the new password is never download from the domain to the local.

Solution: Connect Wifi before user logon

run regedit
Find the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key.
Add a string value to the above mentioned key. Call it anything (WLAN prelogon), but its value should be
%comspec% /c netsh wlan connect name="bssid name"
