Is there a way to manage the properties of the WiFi network adapter through KACE?  Our laptops are mostly defaulting to 2.4ghz which is overcrowded, so on the WiFi network Adapter (Intel N6205) I need to change the settings under Properties > Advanced (tab) > Preferred Band > Value to 3. Prefer 5.2Ghz Band (currently set to 1. No Preference).  Need to push this to all laptops, most likely requiring a script for each type of WiFi NIC.  Systems are running W7 and KACE is v5.4.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  • Have you been able to locate the .conf file for the card you are referring to?
  • I suspect you might be able to do this via WMI calls:

    There's also this:

    http://theroadtodelphi.wordpress.com/2011/10/15/all-about-wifi-networks-and-wifi-adapters-using-the-wmi-and-delphi/

    which is in Delphi but anyone with a modicum of scripting knowledge should be able to adapt it to pretty much anything else. The only worrying thing about it is that a search for '
    WiFi_AdapterVersion' on MSDN turned up 0 results!! A good WMI object browser will help out in that direction (MS has a free one for download)

    Good luck!

  • Thanks for the quick response!
    • you should be able to do this with scripts on the k1000, verify a keyset exists for that type of nic and if ok enforce registry settings. You probably will need a kscript for each different instance of nic type
