Instead of using encryption keys, you may want to consider using certificates if you want to be automated.

    You can review Microsoft's Deploying Wireless Provisioning Services (WPS) Technology. This is one method for automating setup for wireless networks. Another method if you have an AD domain and are using Windows systems is to use GPOs to deploy the wireless configuration. Some questions: - What OSs need to be supported? - What type of authentication are you going use? Note that encryption is a separate item from authentication. Certificates are used for authentication and multiple levels of authentication can be involved in the wireless network connection process. From what you are describing, you appear to want some type of captive portal. This type of system could be blended with the WPS technology.
