I have some Windows 7 machines that are configured to connect to the wireless network here as WPA-Enterprise/TKIP. In order to have them work with 802.11n, we need to move them across to WPA2-Enterprise/AES. Is there any way to do this programmatically e.g. script, reghack or group policy?

Assuming you have an Active Directory domain, your best bet would be to roll out an SSID with the settings you're looking for to the clients using Group Policy. (You can use netsh to do this via script, but if you've got an AD domain Group Policy is much easier...)

The following line did the trick: netsh wlan set profileparameter name="MYPROFILENAME" authentication=WPA2 encryption=AES – askvictor Jul 21 '10 at 6:24
