One SSID Multiple Passwords


I work for a company where we loan out laptops to retailers for different purposes.  We send these laptops out pre-configured for the specific purpose, and the client expects the laptop to be "turn on and go".  Adding a new wireless configuration to the laptops Image has been simple till now.

We just got 2 Clients that use the exact same SSID (ex. STOREWIFI) but different passcodes.  My question is this:  Is there a way to put both WiFi profiles onto the laptop so we don't have to do a last minute configuration at shipping time?

Thank you for any help!

That would depend on the laptop's operating system and how it stores wifi profiles, but typically the SSID is the key that determines uniqueness and so one passphrase would over-write the other if attempting to save both.
