Create or modify a profile:
- Open Intel® PROSet for wireless.
- Select the 'Networks' tab. Here you will be able to create or modify a profile by entering or changing the 'Profile Name', 'Network Name (SSID)', operating mode (Infrastructure/Ad hoc).
- Make the necessary modifications and enter security settings if needed.
If you wish to use the auto-import feature of Intel® PROSet:
- The profile name cannot be longer than 17 characters including spaces. Note: The 17 character limitation no longer exists in version 7.1.3 and later.
- In the lower left hand corner of the general tab of the profile wizard is the 'Enable Auto-Import' feature. Put a check mark in the box and click OK.
Export a profile:
Once the profile(s) have been created and the profile(s) are listed in the 'profile list', you will be able to save the profile(s) by:
- Clicking the 'Advanced...' button on the 'Network' tab page to enter the 'System Wide Options'.
- At the bottom you should see an 'Import/Export' button. Click the 'Import/Export' button. You should now see the profile(s) you have created.
- Select the profile(s) you want to export.
- Right below the profile list you will see the default directory where the profile(s) will be exported to. The default directory is the root of drive 'C:'. You can change the default directory by clicking on the 'Browse...' button and browse to a directory of your choice.
- Now click the 'Export' button to save your profile(s).
- In a few seconds, you will see a message saying that the export has been successful. The names of the profile will have a file name extension of '.profile'.
Importing a profile manually:
Once the profile(s) are saved, you will be able to manually import them for each user by opening Intel® PROSet.
- Select the 'Networks' tab.
- Click the 'Advanced...' button to enter the 'System Wide Options'.
- Click the 'Import' button and browse to the directory where you exported the profile(s).
- Select the profile(s) you wish to import and click 'Import'.
- You should now see the profile(s) in the list.
Auto importing a profile(s):
To be able to Auto-Import a profile you have to have enabled the auto-import feature in the profile before you saved it to disk. If you have done this then all you have to do is copy the profile(s) into a folder named 'Import'.
The full paths is: C:\Program Files\Intel\PROSet\Import
Once you copy the profile(s) into the 'Import' directory they will automatically import into Intel® PROSet. It will take a few seconds. Once the profiles have been imported, they will disappear from the 'Import' directory as if they were deleted.
||If you wish to use 'Auto-Import' feature prior to 7.1.3 software, the profile name cannot be longer than 17 characters including spaces. If the profile name is longer than 17 characters, they will not auto-import into Intel® PROSet. However, they will disappear from the 'Import' directory as if they did auto-import.|
