On our school network we have wireless access for the principal and the teachers who use laptop computers. The server runs Windows Server 2003 and all clients run Windows XP Pro. The school is in two different buildings and the principal and computer teacher both travel from one building to the other with their laptops. Today the principal reported that he was able to logon to the network with no problem in the Primary Building and was able to change his desktop with the changes properly saving to his profile. When he went to the Middle Building his logon time was substantially longer and his desktop did not look at all like what he has closed out of in the Primary Building. Does anyone have any thoughts on what is going on here and what I should do about it?

Software/Hardware used:
Actiontec and Cisco(Linksys) routers

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are many reasons this could happen. Start by checking when he logged on in the Middle Building if he got a temporary profile. The logon times could be cause by group policy processing, wireless issues so do some basic troubleshooting.

    It doesn't seem to be an issue with your wireless infrastruture. This points to more of a server configuration issue. Roaming profiles and/or folder redirection may not be configured properly.. As asked before, has he been able to replicate this issue?
