Wireless & Novell Client

I have my boss insisting on having wireless & use it.
I expect that works fine when used on its own, but he wants/needs to swap between wire (plugged port replicator) & wireless in the rest of the office

Does anybody know (of course I will know when I have time to test it myself) how the client behaves when loosing wire connection & going wireless?

Thanks

Seb

It works the same as if you unplug the wire and then plug it back in.

Our scenario:

* Lenovo Thinkpad laptops with Thinkpad Access Connections software and automatic location switching turned on.
* OES SP2
* Novell Client 4.91 SP5

User that is docked (and wired) undocks, and connects to the wireless. When they re-dock, they experience a 3-5 minute period of NO connectivity while Access Connections switches back from wireless, to wired.

unless you change the default behaviour of windows xp to enable media sense:
make a new Dword value in
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters and name it
DisableDHCPMediaSense and make the value data 0 ( zero ). restart the pc.
this resets the ip address of the wired adapter and clears the
corresponding default gateway.
the default of w2k is to enable mediasense
