If I have another PC that is connected to the network, could I copy the network access to a flash drive and then put it on this PC? If so that would solve any human error correct?


Copying the network profile from one Windows PC to another can indeed bypass potential configuration errors. You’d essentially be exporting the profile from one PC and then importing it to another.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Export the WiFi Profile from the Connected PC:

  • First, you need to identify the exact profile name. Open Command Prompt as an administrator on the computer that is already connected to the network.
  • Enter netsh wlan show profiles to display a list of all wireless networks your computer has connected to.
  • To export the wireless network profile, type:
    netsh wlan export profile name="Sekai Internal" folder=C:\ key=clear
    • This command will save the profile as an XML file in the root of the C: drive. The key=clear part means that the network key (password) will be saved in plain text inside the XML file. Make sure to handle this file securely.
  • Now, move this XML file to a flash drive or any other medium to transfer it to the other computer.

2. Import the WiFi Profile to the Other PC:

  • Plug in the flash drive to the other PC (the one you want to connect to the network).
  • Open Command Prompt as an administrator on this computer.
  • Navigate to the location where you’ve saved the XML file using the cd command. If you placed the XML directly on the flash drive, and the drive’s letter is, for example, D:, you’d type:
  • To import the profile, type:
    netsh wlan add profile filename="Your_XML_Filename.xml"

    Replace “Your_XML_Filename.xml” with the name of your XML file.

  • Once imported, your PC should automatically connect to the “Sekai Internal” network using the settings from the XML file.

This method does effectively minimize human error, as you’re using a working configuration from another device. If the second PC still can’t connect, then it likely points to a hardware or software issue on that specific computer, rather than a configuration error.
