I would like to use the Windows Wireless utility (or something else that is proven) to copy a wireless network configuration to a USB flash drive to be used to set up new wireless clients.  My question is:  How can I store many of these connection settings onto a USB key to use for many different wireless clients and wireless networks?

Thanks for your help.

You would have to store the settings on the USB drive, then copy the files into a folder (would help to name the folder after the SSID) and run the utility again and repeat the process or a new folder, moving the files there and so on.  The "setupSNK.exe" is the executable to run the utility.

Hope this answered your question.

That is exactly what I tried to do.  However, none of the setupSNK.exe files will run.  I click on it and it does nothing.  Vista Business BTW

The only solution I have come up with is to store all of the "profiles" into subdirectories and copy them to the root of the flash drive when I want to use them.  Does anyone know what prevents them from running while in their new location?

Has anyone figured out if it is possible to run this from the network instead of a Flash drive??
