Hi

Currently we have a wireless network for our organisation and all staff laptops and Tablets are connected to this old Wi-Fi network.
It was not worth to upgrade the existing network and we have now implemented a new wireless network. Also we don't have a radius server and we will be planning in the future. The Wi-Fi Security profile we are using for the new Wi-Fi network is WPA2-Personal with AES encryption.

Now I want all the users to switch over to the new wireless network,
I want to do two things Firstly: Don’t want to share the new Wi-Fi password to the staff and want to Connect staff laptops to the new Wi-Fi network
Secondly: Disconnect the laptops from the old Wi-Fi network

I connected a Windows7 laptop to a new Wi-Fi network and copied the newly connected wireless profile to a usb and again connected the USB to another laptop and executed the setupSNK file the laptop got successfully connected to the new Wifi network.

If I copy this profile (files) to a shared drive and if I ask the users to execute the setupSNK file.
Will this be best way to ask the users to connect to the new Wi-Fi network? Bit concerned how they will disconnect the old network want to make this switch over to be simple.

Will a script - batch file OR a GPO do this job?
Please let know the best way of doing this switch over. Any suggestions much appreciated.
Tutorials would be great!
Thanks in advance.
