    SysPrepping XP and Wifi configuration?

    Small problem,

    When Sysprepping a laptop it resets the Wifi settings such as the WEP Key and which network to connect to.

    Does anyone know of a work around so that you can get SysPrep to remember these details? Otherwise it means manually setting the laptops to connect to the WiFi.

    Aruba have produced an open source tool for doing this the link is here https://labs.arubanetworks.com/ It is the WZC Auto Provisioning tool. There is an exe in WzcAutoProvision\Components\WifiCfg\bin\Release\ of the zip file and the help (/?) should tell you everything you need. Can deploy with a startup script when the laptop is still cabled after imaging.

    This is what I did as well for my XP clients.
