Copying ALL wireless network settings from Windows 7 to another Windows 7 computer

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...

Here : http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1597099

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.
