name (WLANProfile) Element

The name (WLANProfile) element contains the name of a wireless LAN profile.

<xs:element name="name"
    type="nameType"
 />

The name element is defined by the WLANProfile element.

Remarks

Names are case-sensitive.

For Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) and Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2), the name element is ignored when the profile is saved in the profile store. The name of the profile is derived from the SSID of the network. For infrastructure network profiles, the name of the profile is the SSID of the network. For ad hoc network profiles, the name of the profile is the SSID of the ad hoc network followed by -adhoc. XML escape characters, such as &, are not displayed. Avoid using XML escape characters in SSID names for profiles deployed on Windows XP with SP3 or Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with SP2.

For any network profile intended for use only on Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, the name can be any string.

Examples
