Create a Wi-Fi profile to connect devices to hidden, encrypted, or password-protected corporate networks. Wi-Fi profiles are useful for end users who need access to multiple networks or for configuring devices to connect automatically to the appropriate wireless network.

Important:

Zero Wireless Config is not available for Windows CE devices except Psion CE devices. You can provision Wi-Fi profiles using Zero Wireless Config to Psion CE devices only but not any other Windows CE devices.

To configure a Wi-Fi profile, follow the steps detailed below:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles > List View > Add and select Add Profile.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.
