Script or setting after SYSPREP resets all wireless settings to default RRS feed

  • Question

  • We maintain about 600 tablets that use the Intel PRO Wireless 3945ABG NIC. The tablets run XP Pro. When we first began rolling these out, there was an issue with connectivity with the wireless AP's. We found out that we had to change  the advance property value for power management from the default setting of Lowest "Maximum Battery Life" to Highest "Maximum Performance".

    However that being typed, whenever we image with SYSPREP, it will restore the settings back to default. We then have to manually go in and change the setting on every system. Very time consuming. Does anyone have a script or a fix for this?
