I'm running Windows XP  SP3 and I've already set up my wireless with a profile (Profile name : GDT1). How do I export this profile ? Also I need  a script that will allow all users  to import it in their laptops.

Okay ..I have solved a bit of my problem...I already have a xxx.p10 file sitting on a network drive . All I need now is a vbscript that will be sent to all laptop users to run which will load the xxx.p10 profile in their respective laptop

Is this for the Intel Proset Wireless?

In Program Files\Intel Proset Wireless\ There is an AutoImport folder. The profiles can be copied there, via script/manually, and it will be sucked into the App as a profile....

I am positive I do not have the path above correct, but the key is the AutoImport folder....

Yes it's for Inter Proset Wireless. I saw the Autoimport and I try it later and let you know. It's almost home time for us in Australia.

It just works fine mate. I might ask you for something in the same question. Is there an easy way to delete some other profiles that I don't want to be used. Remember I need to do that for 400 users.

I want to say they are stored in an odd format under %appdata%\intel\WIFI\WLAN Profiles (hidden folder I think? )

They are not obviously named though, if memory serves.....

Like your SSID of HOME, in the Home profile, might be something totally offbase.....
