Solved - Access wireless terminal after reboot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hmmm so I have a XP terminal which can only gain network access through wifi. It's a test computer which will probably need to be rebooted repeatedly. The problem is once it's rebooted you cannot RDP into it because Windows doesn't connect to the WLAN until after you log into an account.

The only option I really see working is having an account that isn't password protected so it can automatically boot into that account. Having the computer non password protected kind of defeats the whole purpose of this project though.

In the past I've always had ethernet access so this has never been a problem. Any ideas?

Solved Thanks Nemesis158. Auto-login with a password protected account seems so counter-intuitive I've never actually tried to set it up.

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\Winlogon
Using your account name and password, double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type your user name, and then click OK.
Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password under the value data box, and then click OK.

If there is no DefaultPassword value, create the value. To do this, follow these steps:
In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER.
Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value Data box.
Note: If the DefaultPassword registry entry does not exist, Windows XP automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogonregistry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature after the computer is restarted.
Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then click OK.

If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create the entry. To do this, follow these steps:
In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
Type AutoAdminLogon as the value name, and then press ENTER.
Double-click the newly created key, and then type 1 in the Value Data box.
Exit Registry Editor.
Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK.
