It doesn’t want any kind of set up as a result of it’s a transportable program, ideally suited for not having to set up anything and easily run it each time we’d like it. This program is able to displaying a considerable amount of details about all of the wi-fi profiles of our laptop, even when the WiFi community adapter will not be activated, as a result of it obtains the data immediately from the working system with all the small print.

For every WiFi community profile that we’ve saved on our laptop, we’re going to get hold of all this info:

  • Profile title, which is all the time the title of the SSID
  • SSID (WiFi community title)
  • Connection kind
  • Connection mode
  • Authentication
  • Encryption
  • Key kind

This program will even permit us to edit all of the profiles we wish simply and rapidly, enhancing an XML file and utilizing the right syntax in order that it doesn’t return an error, that is solely really useful for superior customers since you may injury the profile and you should have to delete it and create it from scratch with Windows. We may additionally rapidly change the type of handbook connection to computerized and vice versa, as well as, we may change the totally different authentication and encryption modes, change the profile title, SSID and even copy the wi-fi profiles to import them into one other laptop simply and rapidly. Some of those adjustments are essential with the WiFi community card activated, in any other case they can’t be utilized.

To obtain this program we merely have to go to the official web site, click on on “Download Manage Wireless Networks” and unzip the ZIP file that may robotically obtain, as soon as unzipped, we are able to see the next information:

We can execute the ManageWirelessNetworks.exe file as a person or as an administrator, we are going to merely double click on and it’ll load the program to learn all of the profiles of the WiFi networks saved within the working system.

Operation and accessible choices

In the principle menu of the Manage Wireless Networks program we are able to see all of the profiles that we at present have on this laptop, and we are able to additionally see the configuration of the totally different WiFi networks relating to:

  • SSID (WiFi community title)
  • Connection kind
  • Automatic or handbook connection
  • Authentication “Open”, “WEP”, WPA of various variations, even WPA3 SAE is acknowledged accurately.
  • Encryption used within the WiFi community
  • Position in connection precedence
  • And different show choices

If we click on on any WiFi community with the best click on of the mouse, we shall be in a position to view it intimately and make totally different configurations. For instance, we are able to configure the automated or handbook connection mode of a sure WiFi community, as you possibly can see right here:

We even have the likelihood to modify the encryption accessible in WiFi networks, in case of fixing the encryption within the router or within the entry level, we are able to do it immediately from right here with none drawback, among the many accessible choices we’ve the next:

  • WPAPSK-TKIP
  • WPA2PSK-TKIP
  • WPAPSK-AES
  • WPA2PSK-AES
  • WPA3SAE

The most traditional factor at present is to discover WPA2PSK-AES and WPA3SAE networks, as a result of the remainder of the protocols will not be safe and are canceled by the WiFi Alliance.

In the «File» part we are able to make these identical configurations, however later we could have to choose the profile or SSID to edit. Whereas earlier than with the best click on we select the WiFi community to modify, on this part we first select the motion and later the SSID that we wish to edit.

In the “Edit” part we are able to seek for a selected profile that we’ve within the system, we are able to additionally copy the chosen profiles and even choose or deselect all of them to carry out totally different actions.

In the «View» part we are able to type the totally different profiles in accordance to the title of the WiFi community (SSID), kind of connection, information encryption used and others. From right here we are able to additionally present a QR code with the profile that we wish, to simply join with our smartphone. We may present traces as if it had been an Excel file, export a report in HTML of all of the WiFi networks or solely the chosen ones, the opportunity of selecting which columns we wish to present, if we wish to modify their dimension or refresh the show of all of the networks.

In the «Help» part we are able to run this program as an administrator, however we could have precisely the identical choices accessible.

One of essentially the most attention-grabbing elements is to give you the chance to see the password of the WiFi community, or go immediately to the Windows profile of a selected WiFi community, so as to edit it by way of the working system itself and never use the XML editor that’s far more skilled and “handbook” than doing it with Windows. If we right-click on any profile and select “Edit Wireless Profile” we are able to go immediately to the profile saved within the Windows 10 working system.

Something that has caught our consideration about this program is that it has been in a position to detect the WPA3-Personal protocol with none drawback, for instance, within the two networks of “RedesZone” we use WPA3-SAE solely, and it has detected it completely and with out issues.

If we right-click on a selected SSID and select “Properties” we are able to see intimately all of the accessible show choices, besides the WiFi password that seems in white. As you possibly can see, it has accurately detected the WPA3SAE with AES encryption that we’ve configured in our wi-fi router.

Thanks to this Manage Wireless Networks instrument from NirSoft we shall be in a position to view all of the profiles of the WiFi networks that we’ve configured on our laptop, as well as, we are able to simply edit them in a sophisticated method by way of a built-in XML editor, nevertheless, our suggestion is that you simply click on In “Edit Wireless Profile” to get the Windows configuration menu and you’ll edit the profile simply and rapidly by way of the system.
