XP wireless profile to Win 7

    Question

  • Hi
    when I had XP I was able to backup and export a wireless profile which created a file with a  Certificate Request (.p10) extension.

    How do I now import this profile into Windows 7?

    Thanks

  • The only suggestion I have is to go to the Intel support site and see if they have a solution. If they have a support forum try posting there.

  • You should be able to use Windows Connect Now [WCN] on the XP machine to transfer an existing wireless network profile, ie. SSID/encryption type/key, to a USB flash drive. Then you can simply plug in the flash drive to the Windows 7 PC/laptop.

    Open the wizard and use the Manually assign a network key option.

    Hi
    I failed to mention that the wireless profile .P10 had been created by IntelPro Set  wireless software. Ive been to intel and downloaded there latest version but there is no mention of how to import the profile back in. I also tried their older version of the software but it's not supported and will not run in compatability mode.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you for your time :-)
