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.

    From this thread:

    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.
