How to add WiFi networks during post install tasks?

We have 2 main wifi networks we'd like all PCs to have. Is this possible via the post install tasks? I found a KACE video, but the link has expired.

This can be accomplished using "netsh wlan" commands: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755301(v=ws.10).aspx

We used this method at one time and saw mostly successful deployments, however it was not 100%.  Can't really tell you why not, just something we noticed.

Basically you set up a wireless profile and export it into an XML file, then use a batch command to import the profile as a post-install task.
