I'm using MDT 2012 to deploy Windows 7 Pro x64. How can I include wireless profiles for several different WiFi networks? There is no domain, all machines are on a workgroup using group policy is not an option.

Is there a Task Sequence, script or other option to automatically connect to WiFi networks?

There's also a command line option to export/import wireless profile using netsh:

Hope that helps.
