The procedures in this section provide the steps to use the New Windows XP Wireless Network Policy to configure wireless profiles that wireless clients running Windows XP will use to connect to your wireless network.

Similar to the New Wireless Network Policy for computers running Windows Vista, you can use the New XP Wireless Network Policy to configure and prioritize multiple profiles by using the wireless network policy for computers running Windows XP. However, unlike the wireless policy for Windows Vista, the wireless policy for Windows XP requires each profile to specify a unique service set identifier (SSID).

Membership in Domain Admins, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete these procedures.
