Right-clicking on a wireless network opens a context menu with the following options:

  • Connect…: Opens a dialog to connect to the selected wireless network.
  • Disconnect: Disconnect from the selected wireless network.
  • Export…: Opens a dialog to export the selected or all wireless network(s) to a file.

In the search field, you can filter the wireless networks by SSID, Security, Channel, MAC Address (BSSID), Vendor and Phy kind. The search is case insensitive.

Due to limitations of the Windows.Devices.WiFi API the channel bandwidth cannot be detected.


Right-click on the result to copy or export the information.


On the Channels tab, all wireless networks of the selected wireless network adapter are displayed in a graphical view with the channel and signal strength. This can be useful to identify overlapping wireless networks that do not originate from the same access point.

You can move the mouse over the channel to display all wireless networks in a ToolTip that occupy that channel.
