Automate Wireless Key Deployment (Dell)

If you have a Dell laptop with the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility and you want copy the wireless profile settings to another laptop (or in my case, 300+ laptops) that the same program, it is as simple as drag and drop.

On the with the wireless profile you want to copy, export the profile to a WPN file. I have posted previously on how to do this.
Next, on the laptop you want to add the wireless profile, copy the WPN file to the C:\Windows\System32 folder then either reboot the computer or restart the Dell Wireless WLAN Service.

You can use a simple batch file to copy WPN file for you when the computer starts up. Or if you have Kaspersky, WPKG, or a similar push program, you can use that also.

I will be posting directions on how to deploy wireless for Windows machines that do not have the Dell Wireless Utility shortly (In the next day or two).
