We have many many laptop that are our internal wireless name not at the top of the wireless network list. So sometimes they do not automatically connect when booting up. Is there a way to use maybe GPO or something else to modify this on multiple systems to move our connection to the top of the list?

I know how to change it, but I need to change it on hundreds of systems.

Wondering if I can use GPO or something to do it.

Try this..

1) Create a new GP
2) Browse to Computer Config /Windows Settings/ Security / Wireless Network Policies
3) Create a new policy and list all of your wireless connections and the order which you want them listed in.
