Import Wireless Profiles Using Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software

Import user-based profiles to and from the Profile list. Also, learn how to automatically import wireless profiles into the Profiles list.

A profile is a saved group of network settings. Profiles are useful when moving from one wireless network to another. Different profiles can be configured for each wireless network. Profile settings include the network name (SSID), operating mode, and security settings.

To import profiles manually, follow the procedure indicated below:

  1. Go to Control Panel by clicking Start > Control Panel > then select Network and Internet.

  2. Under Network and Internet select Intel® PROSet/Wireless Tools.

  3. Under Administer subsection of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Tools, click the Import… button.

  4. Select the profile files to import by browsing the files on your computer.

  5. After selecting the profile click the Import button.

    You will be notified that the profile has been successfully imported.

    Note An administrator can set profiles to be imported automatically into the Profiles list. Intel® PROSet/Wireless monitors the import folder on your hard disk for new profile files. Only profiles that have been enabled through Enable Auto-Import in the Advanced Settings are automatically imported. If a profile of the same name already exists in the Profiles List, you are notified to either reject the imported profile or accept it. If accepted, the existing profile is replaced.
