I am setting up 60 laptops - (all Dell Latitude D520 running XP pro sp2) - that will be available for about 150 different users logging onto a Windows 2003 server via wireless access points with WEP encryption. I'm trying to find out how to configure these computers - using either the Intel PROset wireless software or XP to manage the connection - so that the WEP key is already available and configured even when a user logs on the first time.
I tried importing the HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WZCSVC/Parameters/Interfaces registry settings from a pc that already has the WEP key set, but that didn't work, and even if it did, it would require a reboot once the .reg file was imported in order for the change to take effect.
I also thought I found an option in the Intel PROset configuration that allowed for this, however I could not get it to work properly either.
Does anyone know what the best means of accomplishing this would be?
