Disable PROSet/Wireless in a Script

I need to switch to Windows to manage WiFi connections instead of PROSet/ Wireless on several thousand clients. Is there a way to disabled the PROSet/Wireless Utility and switch to use Windows to manage WiFi in a scriptable fashion - e.g. disabling a service and enabling another or a command that can be run at a command prompt?

Hello lmend,

 

 

Thanks for posting in our communities. We understand that you need to allow Windows* to manage Wi-Fi on several clients.

 

 

Are all client systems using Windows 7? Also, why is it required to disable Intel® PROSet/Wireless Wi-Fi management?

 

 

Best regards,

Eugenio,

All clients are using Windows 7. As for why I need to disable PROSet/Wireless, please look at this thread .

Hello lmend,

 

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

 

In this case, our best recommendation will be to create, import, and configure the profiles using the methods provided by Microsoft* instead of Intel PROSet/Wireless. There are no scripts to disable the Wi-Fi management on several clients for Intel PROSet/Wireless.

 

 

Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.

 

 

Best regards,

Eugenio,

To clarify, does this mean the PROSet/Wireless client must be manually disabled on each client in order to allow Windows to managed the wireless connections?

Hello lmend,

We're currently investigating if there's any alternative we may recommend to disable PROSet/Wireless WiFi management on several clients. However, please bear in mind that you still have to reconfigure the profile using Windows* methods.

We'll let you know as soon as we have updates.

EDIT: lmend We recommend you uninstall PROSet/Wireless WiFi and reinstall without the custom profiles in order to reconfigure them using Windows* options. You may reinstall the latest driver using https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005730/network-and-i-o/wireless-networki... silent installation method.

Best regards,
