Microsoft netsh wlan commands

This is one of those topics that I love to revisit. Mainly because I’ve used these commands in the field for troubleshooting, site surveys, etc when I don’t have tools available or cant install troubleshooting applications on the client PC.


These commands can be used in a batch file to gather information easier or scheduled to gather information at a set time or interval. A good example would be to use the netsh wlan show networks modes=bssid command in a batch file to gather wifi information when you go to a specific location, or with Microsoft’s task scheduler to collect wifi stats at a specific time orinterval.


Here are the commands I used in the video

netsh wlan show

netsh wlan show all

netsh wlan show all >showall.txt

netsh wlan show

netsh wlan show networks

netsh wlan show networks mode=bssid

netsh wlan show profile

netsh wlan show profile name=lakeside5

netsh wlan show profile name=lakeside5 key=clear


Command prompt as administrator

netsh wlan show wlanreport
