Backup Wireless setting on XP manually

Hi all

I have around 10 wireless network connection configured on my laptop and I would want them to manually copy my entire Wireless network setting for the backup purpose

Is their any way I can copy manually, any XML files or any tools for that?

Withing windows you can export much of the information but I am not certain if you can export all such as passwords, using the netsh command.
To save the existing configuration, at a command line (DOS windows) enter:
netsh dump > C:\Temp\Saved.nsh
To import the file for restoration purposes or transfer to another PC:
netsh -f > C:\Temp\Saved.nsh

It can also include drive mappings, workgroup memberships, and printers. Within these applications you can save the configuration. He mentioned NetSwitcher, and there are several others:

I am in the same issue trying to migrate my Wireless LAN Settings to a new system.  I investigated using NETSH, though XP only has the option for a WIRED LAN.   The NETSH command under Vista has a separate WLAN setting.  This would be a nice update for XP in SP3.
