FOG Snapin to Deploy Ruckus Pre-Shared Keys (PSKs) to Windows 7 Laptops

The Problem...

At one of our clients' sites where we installed FOG (An open-source, networked computer hard drive imaging solution), there was only one thing preventing them from reaching the goal of having practically hands-free deployments of their Windows 7 images to their laptops: The wireless profile configuration.

End-user Control of Wireless Networks Using Open-Source Software

The Request:

We recently had a client come to us with a very specific, albeit an unconventional request with regards to the type of wireless solution they envisioned. Due to concerns from some parents and faculty members, they wanted to limit the amount of RF signals the children were exposed to while at their school.

To meet this goal, they wanted the ability to enable and disable individual wireless access points so that they could provide wireless connectivity only when and where it was necessary for teaching specific classes, and then disable it all other times. They also wanted the process to be as simple as possible so that teachers would be able to easily manage the state of the wireless access points.

In an age when everyone expects 24/7/365 Internet access everywhere, they wanted to do the opposite.
