Hi

I have a small security problem. I got it on win2ksp4 with netgear
wg111t and now encounters the same problem on winxpsp3 with an asus
notebook (intel pro/wireless 3945abg chipset).
The box is installed correctly, wifi drivers too and they work as an
admin user.
But when using a non-admin account, it seems the driver can't load or
initialize network, so i'm without network when using non-privileged
account and forced to make some users to use admin whereas they don't
need it.

I think it's a dev problem from the constructor but want to check that's
not microsoft's and this problem is solved in Vista.
Is it the case ?

thanks
