Require Admin rights to create Ad Hoc network
Authored by: brett_x on Jan 21, '09 08:50:05AM
Good tip. I might add to that... You can also require admin password to control Airport under Network system preferences. Just click on your Airport, then click "Advanced". There's a checkbox for it. The difference is that you can't even join Airport networks if you select this.
The really nice thing is that this option is location specific. So, for laptops, if you don't have any reason end users should be changing or joining Airport networks while in the office, you can set up an "Office Network" location and check that box. When they are on the road, they can have an "Other Networks" location to choose that will allow them to join Airport networks. Just be aware that they have to log out or reboot after changing network locations for that to work.
