I'm trying to push wifi settings to client computers through Active Directory, something that will add a defaul SSID to connect to and a WPA password. The only thing I've heard of is a script by Aruba labs called wificfg_xp.exe on a couple of forums (Here and here), but the link to the download page is always broken. Does any one know of an alternative way to download this file, or another way to push these settings with AD?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

What version of Windows Server? What clients? – Dave M Sep 21 '12 at 20:47
Oh, thanks, sorry I forgot to include that information. Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows XP. – Hank Gettinger Sep 22 '12 at 21:09

Create a Group Policy and edit Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, and then click Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies.

See .
