FIPS Profile Sample

The FIPS profile sample can be used to connect to a network that requires security settings that comply with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 standard. For more information about FIPS, see FIPSMode.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed:  Changes are implemented on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed to optimize wireless networking performance. The default setting for autoSwitch when this element is not set in a wireless LAN profile has changed. The default setting is changed to "false" on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Wireless LAN Service installed. The default setting was "true" on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. Please refer to the autoSwitch schema element description for more information.

Windows XP with SP3 and Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with SP2:  The name child of the WLANProfile element is ignored. The name of the profile, as stored in the profile store, is derived from the name child of the SSID element. The FIPSMode element is not supported.
