Netsh Commands for Wireless Local Area Network (wlan)

The Windows Vista™ Netsh commands for wireless local area network (WLAN) provide methods to configure connectivity and security settings. You can use the Netsh wlan commands to configure the local computer, or to configure multiple computers by using a logon script. You can also use the netsh wlan commands to view wireless Group Policy settings and to administer WISP and user wireless settings.

The wireless Netsh interface has the following benefits:

  • Easier wireless deployment: Provides a light-weight alternative to Group Policy to configure wireless connectivity and security settings.
  • Mixed mode support: Allows administrators to configure clients to support multiple security options. For example, a client can be configured to support both the WPA2 and the WPA authentication standard. This allows the client to use WPA2 to connect to networks that support WPA2 and use WPA to connect to networks that only support WPA.
  • Block undesirable networks: Administrators can block and hide access to non-corporate wireless networks by adding specific networks or network types to the list of denied networks. Similarly, administrators can allow access to corporate wireless networks.

Netsh WLAN commands for wireless interface

You can run these commands directly from the Windows Vista command prompt by typing netsh wlan followed by the command, or by switching to the wlan context by using the following instructions.

Entering the netsh wlan context

To enter the netsh context for wlan
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK, to open a command prompt.
  2. At the command prompt, type netsh and press Enter, then type wlan and press Enter.
