    Is there a utility that will allow you to configure and control
    wireless adapters and their configuration settings from the command
    line on XP.

    Specifically I want to set the Network Key and SSID settings without
    having the user run up the properties dialog.

    Any ideas greatfully received,

    Did your wireless card not come with it's own configuration utility?

    Hi Doug,

    Yes I think some of the cards came with various configuration GUI's
    but I am trying to develop a consistant way of setting up a wireless
    configuration for a variety of laptops and wireless cards (some on
    board & some PCMCIA).

    I was hoping someone might know of a utility along the lines of
    ipconfig.exe or net.exe etc. but maybe that is a little too

    I did note that XP SP2 has some kind of 'Improved wireless
    configuration' tool so I will investigate that also.

    I think the XP SP2 is ALL you are going to get. MS seems to want to protect
    us from having access to the API's or other methods for solving the problem
    you mention. Batch files or Windows Scripting Host access would make too
    much sense. You might by accident have an easy way to walk users through to
    joining your network if they allowed you that kind of access.

    SP2 will help, but it is not what you would really like.
