Wireless network policies configuration via GPO

Hi all,
         does anybody know if there is a way to include the password in the wifi network configuration using GPO?

I'm looking at this policy

computer configuration - windows settings - security settings - wireless network (IEEE 802.11) Policies

Thank you in advance

You are in the right spot. But unfortunately, they do not allow you to enter a password (refered to as a PSK - pre shared key) for windows security reasons.

If using the group policy for wireless network setting, you should be using 802.1x with AAA servers and potentially certificates.

Even though the policy contains the authentication type, it simply passes the connection on to somewhere else for authentication.
