Maybe this is wishful thinking or maybe I am missing the section, but is it possible to configure a wifi connection for the device upon activation? 

 

I want to have the internal wifi settings pre-loaded for the users when they activate their new device.

 

Thanks,

Rick, what kind of devices are these?  Are you supervising them or using DEP?

I'm trying to think this through but the device are always going to need an internet connection to be able to connect to DEP in the first place.  You have to bootstrap this somehow.  I'm not sure how you could automatically create the WiFi settings without any internet connection.  You can imagine this being a useful thing to do, but I can't really see how you could do it.
