Define WPA-PSK using Group Policy

I have a wireless network and an Active Directory Domain; i need to define the network key using group policy to roll it out to clients. However i cannot find a way of defining the PSK using Group Policy. I am aware that i could use WPA Enterprise, but this is not an option as the Printers do not support WPA enterprise.

Any help is greatly appreciated

You can try netsh to export the wireless profile from a connected computer, then import using a logon script.

To list the profiles use:

netsh wlan show profiles

Then export using the name

netsh wlan export profile name=”your wireless network” folder=.
(folder=. export to the current folder in your cmd prompt)

You can configure a logon script to perform the following

netsh wlan add profile filename="some_network_drive:\wifi-profile.xml
or if your wireless AP supports multiple SSIDS, you can put the printers on a WPA-PSK SSID, and your computers on the WPA enterprise one
