Modify List of Preferred Wireless Networks via Script

I'm trying to write a script (batch, vbscript, kixtart, autoit or even an EXE) that can redefine the list of preferred wireless networks on the computer. It needs to remove whatever wireless networks are there, and then add the two that I want to have in there, complete with WEP key.

The closest I found was this:

But it still isn't quite right. That just does a sendkeys to the wireless network setup wizard. Can anyone help me out?

The computers might actually come with some wireless software that has profiles I can use. I'll see if I can do it that way.

Okay, the thinkpad laptops come with software called "Access Connections" which manages the wifi profiles. If I use their software, it comes with the ability to export a profile, and those profiles can be deployed to other computers on the network via a script.

So I guess that's good enough.
