FBWF & Manage Wireless Networks - Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I use FBWF on my WES7 images and i want save the wirless networks profils in the Manage Wireless Networks menu.

    But I can't do it because I don't find all registry keys to be added into the Registry Filter.

    My configuration :

    Fbwfmgr.exe /enable
    Fbwfmgr.exe /addvolume C:
    Fbwfmgr.exe /addexclusion c: \ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc

    In Registry Filter :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\HomeGroup

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList



    With this configuration it does not work, the networks is not stored.

    But if i add in the FBWF exclusion list the hives path (%SystemRoot%\System32\Config) it's OK.

    What are the keys that have been forgotten? And All keys is good ?

    Thank You for your help.

  • Hi Sean,

    What is the device driver servcie for the wireless card ?

    I added the Wireless Networking Package and the driver for my wifi card (Atheros AR9285).

    I can connect to wifi access point but when i restart the PC (with FBWF enable) it does not automatically reconnect to the previous access point.
    And the Manage Wireless Networks menu is empty.

    Thank's for your help Sean,
