Have a look here
Our Windows 7 build disk sets the WiFi up on computers with a WiFi connection, but instead of setting it to AES it's defaulting to TKIP. Which means no connection until I've changed it manually.
Is there any way of setting the default encryption?
The settings, in the RM management console, I have for the defaults don't include what encryption to use, so it defaults to the first option.
This is a CC4 network, so a CC4 way of doing it would be handy. But, if I have to do it the proper Windows way I have no problems. [I just need to make a note of what I've done MS style, as opposed to RM style.]
Might not help, but ours defaults to TKIP too, but that is fine for us
Tkip is less secure, heavier on waps as it is usually not hardware accellerated and is more of a hack of 11g rather than fully supported. I don't think it is even supported under n speeds.
AES is better to use if at all possible.
We have a way of pushing out all of that, it's just the encryption what we can't control.
Like that. [With a few school specific changes.]Code:<?xml version="1.0"?> <WLANProfile xmlns="http://www.microsoft.com/networking/WLAN/profile/v1"> <name>WIRELESS</name> <SSIDConfig> <SSID> <hex>574952454C455353</hex> <name>WIRELESS</name> </SSID> </SSIDConfig> <MSM> <security> <authEncryption> <authentication>WPA2PSK</authentication> <encryption>AES</encryption> <useOneX>false</useOneX> </authEncryption> </security> </MSM> </WLANProfile>

As far as I'm aware you'd need to leave the file 'as is'. If your wireless network isn't called WIRELESS, you'll need to manually add a Win 7 workstation to your wireless network then export the information. This is because <hex> is based on your SSID name.
