    backup wifi settings before updating to JB 1.1.3

    could someone help me with this. before I update to jb 1.1.3
    The folders in /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration
    there are a couple of .plist files "preferences.plist and com.apple.wifi.plist" and maybe "com.apple.network.identification.plist"


    1.If you were to backup these plist files then restore ipod to factory settings, could you then replace these files with the backup you just created and still connect to your protected wireless networks that were saved?

    2.Use these files on a iphone example: take my iphone and replace the files with the backed up ipod files and use it to connect to all the protected wifi networks that I do with my ipod?

    could someone try this for me I really could use this.
    thanks

    when you restore there is an option after you update to a firmware to use your backup settings or new in itunes

    you know when you restore and after you installed a firmware version it says that you can restore to back up or set up as new ipod and yes i think you have to restore to select a backup
