I'm trying to get my wireless adapter to work from the KACE KBE USB boot, and the problem I'm running into is that I'm not able to use the command "netsh wlan". Whenever I use "WLAN", I get:

The following command was not found: WLAN

Is there any way to somehow get the WLAN command to work? I've rebuilt the WIM file with ImageX with necessary files, etc to join the wireless network once it does the wpeutil networkinitialize, and it seems to work fine - up until the point I do "WLAN". It doesn't even recognize the wireless adapter when doing IPCONFIG /ALL, even though I've done a driver harvest for the wireless drivers.

Is this at all possible?

From these posts I found on MSFN.org, you can install the netsh wlan module into WinPE, then create and export a profile from Windows (with key=clear meaning the password is in cleartext), and then automate the import of that profile in WinPE.

Yeah, I saw the same one. I tried copying all DLL files over into the BOOT.WIM, with no luck. If it do "netsh wlan", it says wlan is not a recognized command still. If I do an ipconfig /all, it only shows the ethernet adapter, not the wifi one, even though I've done the driver harvest.

So I looked at this again - I did the registry entry wrong. I copied all DLL files correctly, but after adding the registry "wlan", when I do "netsh wlan", it shows:

The following helper DLL cannot be loaded: WLANCFG.DLL

When I do "netsh add helper wlancfg.dll", it shows the same error. I have wlancfg.dll in the system32 folder where I'm running this from.

Any ideas?
