Is there an easy (rather than trying to capture the changes with regmon) way to centrally change the wireless network priorities in XP? I know in Vista it can be done with netsh set profileorder, but that's not supported in XP. We need to set a certain wireless profile to be on top of the priority list, no other changes necessary. AD is native 2003 functionality level.

I know you can set your "Preferred Networks" in XP, but this is just a list and I don't think XP pays any attention to the order.
The only way I found was to use the WIFI utility that came with the card (Dlink in my case) which allowed this functionality.

In our case we use 2 Access Points in the building and both using the same SSID. When a client walks from one part to the other, his system detects the strongest signal automatically and connects to the best AP.

Hope this helps a bit.
