Thank you for all your answers. 

We will see how we will address it ! I like the profile solution. Simple and not to expensive. I will also have a look 
on the Odyssey client. 

Best regards.

RE: Wireless or wired but not at same time

Have you tried creating profiles for 'docked' and 'un-docked' on the laptop configuration? It works most of the time, 
the only issues I've come across is that when you re-dock, the profile does not change back to the docked one. But it 
works great when you un-dock.

Subject: Wireless or wired but not at same time


I have to create  a wireless access in all the conference room (about 20 in different location). We will use cisco 
material to do this. We want give access to either enterprise access or guest access. But there are several questions 

I don't know which product would be interesting to use for managing right for a guest access ? What are you using ? It 
should be used by several non-technical people, be sufficiently granular (access for guest for several hours, half-day) 
and be sufficiently verbose to have reports of what the people did. 

The second question concerns the cohabitation between wired and wireless connection. We don't want (especially my boss) 
that the two connection are active at the same time. When the laptop is connected through wire, it will not be possible 
to connect throught wireless. Has somebody face this problematic ? Is there a client that could control that ? We use 
mainly different Dell laptop, with different wireless cards. 

A big thank you for all the answer and sorry for my bad english.
