WiFi disable when lan is connected not working with Realtek

Hello
I created a ZESM Hardware communication policy with "wifi disabled at connected lan".
Policy is working at laptops with Intel wifi card.
On laptops with Realtek RTL 8723BE Wifi NIC it is not working.
Laptops OS is Windows 7 Sp1 x64 with Patches and ZCM agent is 11.4.1.

Any solution for this?

Hi Adeckert

We have this issue. It was put down to a virtual VPN adaptor being seen as an ethernet adaptor. In our case, our workaround (this was not provided by Novell) was to remove the binding of Novell ZENworks Location Awareness and Novell ZENworks Wireless Location Awareness from the VPN adaptor, using nvspbind.

You can download the nvpsbind utility https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/... and create a bundle to install and launch.

We have scheduled this to run on device boot, because we found that the bindings would eventually re-enable themselves if left to run once.

Hi dantutty,

I opened a support call an we found, that the MAxNumFilters at HKLM\System\CCS\Control\Network have set to 14 (hex), if you have "too much" network devices in device manager.
We also use OpenVPN and a UMTS Broadband adapter. We also configured the loacation policy for VPN with the name of the UMTS adapter in the policy and it is now working
