    Windows 10 Enterprise - Unable to auto connect to Verizon Mifi


    I have a Verizon Mifi Jetpack that I am unable to connect to using Windows 10 Enterprise. If I reimage the same machine with Windows 10 Pro it connects just fine.

    When attempting to connect it hangs at "Checking network requirements..." and never returns. Never gives an error and never prompts for a password. If I manually create the network profile for the wireless connection I am able to connect.

    Steps tried to resolve issue:

    1. Tried switching from 2.4GHz to 5GHz on Mifi
    2. Tried switching authentication protocols on Mifi (WPA2 AES, WPA2 TKIP etc..)
    3. Tried deploying Windows 10 Enterprise on different machines. Same issue (Surface Book w/ Marvell NIC; Dell Laptop w/ Intel NIC)
    4. Tested with updated drivers on the laptop with an Intel NIC.

    Any ideas on this one? I've tried doing netmon and netsh traces and procmon traces but I can't seem to spot anything.

    Thank you for your time.

    Forgot to mention. All machines tested (Enterprise and Pro) were running 1607 Anniversary Update with latest cumulative update installed.

    This would only be an assumption based upon Win10 Pro working and the Win10 Enterprise message of "Checking network requirements..." but seems to me since the Enterprise version is more intended to business-type Networks it may be looking for the Network Server and doesn't see the Mi-Fi unit. I've not yet had to work with the Enterprise version, haven't seen anyone in my small area [8,000 folks in the whole county] running it yet.
