managing wireless networks


Active Member
just wanted to share a couple of commands that have helped me manage my wireless networks. if you've looked for the graphical interface that existed in windows 7, it no longer exists in windows 8. I have no idea why microsoft decided to remove it. anyways, these commands are handy if you have a location that has several wireless profiles that you connect to and want to give priority to some over others.

at a command prompt, enter:

netsh wlan show profiles

this will just show you all of the wireless profiles that you've saved to automatically connect to.

netsh wlan set profileorder name="profilename" interface="Wi-Fi" priority=1

replace "profilename" with the name of the profile you wish to prioritize. you can check that it worked using the first command. I'm not sure if any of this applies to the RT since I don't have one. feel free to move this to the PRO forum if appropriate.
