I don't think theres any wireless settings within the unattended answer files for 7. You can only specify wether to show the wireless network selection on first logon.

I can only suggest to use a GPO instead.

When I connect to AP it ask's me for WEB key who I have to manually type in. I need to connect many laptops to the same AP with the same WEB key, and it would take me very long time to do it manually on each computer.

Do your machines join to a domain after install or are they standalone?

If they are part of the domain then a gpo can be used

If they are standlone you can export details to a usb key and import from that
