I've noticed a few tutorials on how to copy ONE wireless network setting to a USB flash drive but what if you have like 200 wireless networks?  Any easy way to copy ALL of them to a new computer?

Thanks in advance

Sorry, misread the question...

Don't specify the profile name for all profiles.

Interesting, you can export all in one quick command which creates an XML file for each network, but I don't see an easy way to import all the 200 XML files into the new computer.  Is this correct?

I had the same thing. I could not find a way to import all on one go. Also it did not import the security keys that the wifi networks used. I had to type them manually.

Hello !

see the code below to import all profiles in one go.

Type both lines at the dos prompt.

If you create a batch file out of this, replace "%a" with "%%a".

Syldra
Set XMLPath=c:\Path_to_profile_files

for /f %a in ('dir /b "%XMLPath%\*.XML"') do (netsh wlan add profile filename="%XMLPath%\%a")

Open in new window

I do object.

My solution works. If the asker does not care enough to come back and rate my answer, that's too bad, but I DID provide a working solution to the problem and I feel this should be rewarded.
