IntelŽ PROSet/Wireless Software WiFi Connection Utility Features

The following features are available in Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software WiFi Connection Utility:

  • The Wi-Fi Protected Setup detects when a compatible wireless router is present and provides easy connection to it.
  • The Intel® Wireless Troubleshooter provides valuable assistance in resolving wireless connection problems.
  • The Administrator Tool installs to the Tools menu, and is used to configure common (shared) profiles. The Information Technology department also uses this tool to enable or disable features within the WiFi connection utility.

Windows* Management Instrumentation (WMI) support
WMI allows administrators who do not have the Wi-Fi connection utility installed to manage remote clients that do have the Wi-Fi connection utility installed.

Single sign on
Installs the Single Sign On Pre-Login Connect feature. This tool is used to configure common (shared) profiles with the Administrator Tool. Single Sign On is targeted to the enterprise environment where users log on to their computer with a user name, password, and typically a domain. Fast User Switching does not support domain logon. The Fast User Switching and the Windows XP* Welcome Screen are disabled when Single Sign On support is installed.

Note Windows Fast User Switching is enabled by default if you use Windows XP Home Edition*, and is targeted for the home user. Fast User Switching is also available on Windows XP Professional* if you install it on a stand-alone or workgroup-connected computer. If a computer running Windows XP Professional is added to a domain, then Fast User Switching option is not available.

Pre-logon connect:
A Pre-logon/Common profile is active once a user logs on to the computer. Pre-logon Connect establishes a wireless connection before the user logs on to Windows. This feature is installed with Single Sign On.
