Windows Wireless Config

Recommended Posts

djone21

I am a system admin at a fairly large educational institution in Australia. Many of our users use our on-site wireless service, however it requires some configuration. I want to automate the following in Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Right Hand Mouse Click Wireless Device -> Properties

Wireless Network Connection Properties, Wireless Networks Tab:

-"Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" CHECKED

Add Button, Wireless Networks Tab:

Association Tab:

SSID: CORPAP

Network Authentication: WPA

Data Encryption: TKIP

-"The key is provided..." CHECKED

-"This is a computer-to-computer (ad-hoc)..." UNCHECKED

Authentication Tab:

EAP Type: PEAP

-"Authenticate as a computer when..." CHECKED

-"Authenticate as a guest..." UNCHECKED

Properties button, Authentication Tab:

-"Validate Server Certificate" UNCHECKED

Authentication Method: EAP-MSCHAP-v2

-"Enable Fast Reconnect" UNCHECKED

Any help would be much appreciated :-)

I used the following script from the forums as a template. It works very well. http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...amp;hl=wireless

I eventually converted it into a Visual Studio ClickOnce application which users could run from a local intranet page to setup the wireless settings. I'm actually working on it again so I'll post the code once it is done.

It might be a better idea to edit the interface settings through the registry instead of automating boxes. That would be much more reliable if you plan on deploying it on many different systems.

Question for Distrophy,

Do you know exactly where you can find those keys in the register? I'm puzzling with the exact same problem.

Many thanks in advance!

I believe certain additions require at least disabling then reenabling the adaptor (which im sure someone has a dll call for

)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces

Each adapter installed will be listed there. If you are planning on having users run this, you could have those pop up in a list and ask them to select the appropriate one so you don't mess anything up.
