Today we are posting Intel® PROSet/Wireless Advanced Enterprise Software and the Intel® PROSet Wireless Profile Migration Tool.
Before you head off to go download these two software programs, let me tell you a little about them.
Some of you may remember a Blog run a few months ago asking for input on some new software for Windows 7. This software would offer some of the same features as PROSet did on Windows XP but would work on Windows 7.
The Advanced Enterprise software is focused on the features that enterprise customers said were critical to managing wireless in their company. For the IT Administrator here are some great new features:
- User Interface to create and manage profiles
- Remotely configure client and profile behaviors via IT Admin profiles and packages
- Support for GPP profiles
- Ability to create and distribute profile packages with specific settings
- Support for extended EAP security
- Adapter switching
- Reset PROSet
Intel® PROSet Wireless Profile Migration Tool - this is a tool to migrate Windows XP profiles to Windows 7. You can read or download the user guide for more information.
These features are not very useful to the home user. Some useful home features such as ad hoc profiles and WiFi Protected Setup are not supported in this version.
I’m pretty excited about this new software program. It will really help companies of all sizes to better manage their wireless users on Windows 7. I’ve heard from some of you already that you are looking for these features from Intel.
If you are an IT Administrator, please check out the following links for more information on the features and implementation of the new software. We are planning to offer a special support forum for you in the near future. Please use the current forum for feedback. We’ll be listening.
