Setting up a WIFI network (wireless) requires input of the interminable WEP or WPA security key. However, if you are using multiple computers or your network settings have not been saved, you will need to look again for this damned key and other information relevant to network configuration. However, there is a simple way to export these settings to a USB stick or flash card.
Export a network profile
To get started, click on the icon Network the notification area. Right click on the network of your choice and choose Properties.
Go to the tab Connection from the window that appears then click on Copy this network profile to a USB flash drive.
If a security message appears, allow the action.
A wizard first asks you to insert a USB drive (conventional USB key or Flash card) that will be used to store network settings. Once the USB device has been inserted, click on Next.
Then wait for a few moments, the time of the copy.
The operation completed, click on Close.
Import a network profile
Now that your USB device contains all the information from your network profile, connect it to the computer that requires wireless network configuration.
If autoplay options are enabled, simply click on Connect to a wireless network with Windows Connect Now. Otherwise, open the device — notice in the passage that the icon represents a USB drive and WIFI, and then double-click on setupSNK.exe.
A warning message asks whether or not you confirm the addition of the computer to the wireless network. Make Yes then OK.
You are now connected to the wireless network without requiring any network configuration. Repeat the profile import operation as many times as necessary. This trick works on Windows XP, Vista and Seven. Finally, note that your security key is clear on the USB stick: so be careful!
