I'm looking into using Deep Freeze to lock down the laptops we have in the field and Im trying to find the location of where the wireless settings are stored so I can thaw them so they don't have to enter their wireless keys every time they reboot their computer. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks!

Before entering the thaw mode, try to enter the wireless keys and save the key on the machine in the user's profiles...

and then change the mode to thaw so that it will freeze its settings and next time user can directly access the wireless network...

The problem is you never know where these sales guys might be connecting to, so I can't add every SSID, they have to have the power to add connections.

I was afraid of that. I guess I can look at it as more security because their computer won't automatically connect to an access point I don't want them to, but it does make it a little harder on them. Guess they should learn to keep their noses out of websites they shouldn't be to begin with and we wouldn't have this problem. Thanks!!!
