How to export Atheros wireless settings?

Does anyone know if it is possible to export Atheros wireless settings so that could be deployed to other units via registry or some other means?

I see a way to import/export in the Atheros Client Utility GUI but have not found a command line option to import a profile .prf file.

Export Wireless settings
1. Launch a command prompt as administrator
2. Type “netsh wlan show profiles”
3. Chose profile you want to export.
4. Type Netsh wlan export profile name=”<ProfileName>” Folder=”<Folder Path>”

Example: netsh wlan export profile name=”home-network” folder=”g:\wireless-profile”

Import Wireless Settings Profile

1. Open command prompt with Administrator privileges
2. Type netstat wlan show profile – you will see no profiles defined.
3. Type netsh wlan add profile filename="<path>\<profilename>”
4. By default it will be added to all user profiles, so everybody on this computer can see this new profile and use it.

Thanks!!  I wonder if this is just for Windows wireless or if would work with Atheros client utility.
I will have to try it.
Thanks again!
