Hi everyone,

I am looking for a method to set up the wlan configuration automaticly for my laptops. The laptops are unattended installed with Windows XP SP3. The drivers for the card are correctly installed with the setup, so the card is functional.

Can I do this with an included XP command or does anyone have a script? Or is there a complete different method?

Thanks for every help!

Regards

Whats the make of the Cards? If it is Intel, then you can use the Intel Proset Wireless, and create an Administrative Profile, that can be easily scripted for importing.....

Hi,

its an onboard Broadcam Adapter on an HP 6735s Notebook.

You should be able to setup one, run

netsh int ip dump > a:\ipcfg.txt

to generate a copy of all interface's configuration (edit it down to just the wireless interface), then you can use

netsh exec a:\ipcfg.txt

or just

netsh < a:\ipcfg.txt

should also work, to import it to the others.

Think the Broadcom utility from the OEM site can handle 'importable' profiles. Plus, it will have a PreLogon Connect feature to connect to the Wireless BEFORE logging into the system.

Not sure if this is a Broadcom utility like it used to be, if HP has just relabeled it....... Give it a try.....

Hi,

the tool didn't work out.

My idea was to program something with c# and so I found the windows WLAN Api that comes with Windows XP SP 3 and Vista. But that was too complicated for me. After a depressing search I found a tool called Ct WLAN Kloner (means WLAN cloning tool) which uses this API to export the current config and can import it on a second machine.
