    Tech's dont always get the luxury of making the calls. Management/clients normaly override decisions. Doesn't matter how much you state unsecure, hack or anything else.

    It's like pitching a backup solution to a small business, until something crashes it's not a priority
    I just point to the sign above my desk that states 'I TOLD YOU SO'. They have to have a repeat treatment every now and again. But eventually they get the clue.

    @geoff

    So have you switched to WPA2 for your clients or do you put all your faith in NAC?

This is a .bat file that creates a temporary drive letter. Then it calls an AutoIt script file that automates all the OKs etc...
    Use on the end of our automated cd setup. It has never skipped a beat.


    Bat file here:
    Code:
    @echo OFF
    ECHO Setup in progress. Please do not touch.
    
    REM This script runs the windows xp wireless setup wizard.
    
    REM This 'maps' the t: drive to c:\windows\setuptemp\03_setupwireless
    SUBST T: %SystemRoot%\SetupTemp\03_SetupWireless
    
    ECHO Installing Wireless Network
    
    REM Start the Windows Wireless setup wizard.
    START /W  %systemroot%\SetupTemp\Autoit3.exe %systemroot%\SetupTemp\03_SetupWireless\Setup.au3
    Auto it file here:
    Code:
    ;This script automates the instillation windows wireless setup wizard
    Splashtexton("Setup", "Setting up wireless connection. Please do not touch.", 500, 100)
    
    ;Prevent user sending any keystrokes
    BlockInput(1)
    
    Run ("t:\setupSNK.exe")
    
    WinWait ("Wireless Network Setup Wizard", "Do you want to add")
    
    Send ("{ENTER}")
    
    WinWaitClose ("Wireless Network Setup Wizard", "Do you want to add")
    
    WinWait ("Wireless Network Setup Wizard")
    
    Send ("{ENTER}")
    
    ;Allow Keystrokes to be sent by user
    BlockInput(0)
    You need to put the bat file and autoit3.exe in c:\windows\setuptemp.
    You need to put the autoit script and setupsnk.exe and all the other wireless setup files in c:\windows\setuptemp\03_setupwireless

    EDIT: Unlikely to work on vista!
    Cheers for this, it works great with w7 enterprise
