    We have 3 points at the moment covering a rather heavily walled school, so even though they aren't too far away it makes a huge difference as to which point you can use effectively.
    By default I've set them to the middle area which allows connection to classrooms either side, but on a lower speed. Ideally I'd like something that picks up the best of the three at the time. I suppose I'm dreaming
    I don't understand. Solution 2 (above) should do that - or at least it will pick up AP with the strongest signal, although that doesn't always = fastest throughput. For that you need Ruckus/Aruba @ $$$!

    Zwlancfg

    I'm searching for the freeware Zwlancfg tool, but the download is removed on the original website.

    Does the old (free) version of Zwlancfg support Windows 7 - both x86 and x64?

    I think other people have had this problem with corrupt .zips. Are you using Internet Explorer by any chance? If so, perhaps Firefox or Chrome might be worth trying?

    I'm pulling up an old thread here as I'm hoping someone can help. We've just changed our wireless network and need to add the key to a load of student and staff laptops in the easiest way, quite soon!

    I can see how it can be done using netsh commands but my boss doesn't want the key visible in an xml file in a share.

    I've looked back through this thread and have tried WifiCfg_XP.exe (v1.4). I'm not sure if it works with W7 but I can't get it to work on my home laptop

    Same with zwlancfg.exe (v2.1). Also not sure if it works with W7. It doesn't seem to like any switches, even the one that lists the current wireless profiles so I'm
    guessing probably not.

    We don't use a RADIUS server so that option is out

    Any ideas? There must be a modern way of doing this surely?

    Assuming you're applying this to the machines in a logon script, then why not block domain users from the share and only allow domain computers to access it?

    Or you can do it with GPOs now I believe. You might find this helpful.
