Is it possible to configure the wireless settings at deployment by customizing the Unattend.xml file?

Use WPA-Enterprise (with certificates). Win7 can be configured by GPO to automatically pull certificates and configured to use particular Wireless networks. – Chris S Mar 8 '12 at 13:43

You could configure the wireless profile export it and do a wireless profile import during the oobe phase in FirstLogonCommands. But, doing what Chris S says would be easier to manage in the long run.

You can likely do some settings ( Or all depending on how much work you wanna put into it), as you can use a tool like prossess monitor to find the changes being done by every setting and then deploy them in the installation.

But i would recommend deploying what you can via group policy, this way its simpler to change it when you have to. This also means the users cannot override the settings
