Functions:

  • Connect to or disconnect from a wireless network
  • Rename a wireless profile
  • Change automatic connection (Auto Connect) or automatic switch (Auto Switch) settings of a wireless profile
  • Rush - Perform rescan of wireless networks in short intervals (The number indicates interval (sec).)
  • Engage - Execute automatic connection depending on signal strength, order and automatic switch setting of wireless profiles (The number indicates threshold of signal strength (%).)
  • Reorder - Change the order (priority) of wireless profiles

Requirements

  • Windows 7 or newer

Download

Install/Uninstall

When you use only executables, please note the following:

  • The settings file will be created at: [system drive]\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Wifinian\
  • When you check [Start on sign in], a registry value will be added to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Remarks

  • To rename a wireless profile, press and hold its name.
  • Rescan of wireless networks by OS itself is triggered by some actions and if no such actions take place, seems to be performed once per one minute.
  • Automatic connection by Engage function applies only to wireless profiles whose automatic switch are enabled. If a profile whose automatic switch is not enabled has been already connected, automatic connection will not be executed.
  • When you connect to a wireless network by OS's wireless menu, the order of wireless profiles may be automatically changed.
  • A wireless profile is associated with a specific wireless adapter and if the adapter is not in place, such profile will not be shown.

How to delete wireless profiles from OS's GUI

The GUI to delete wireless profiles has come back in Windows 8.1 Update. To reach this GUI, see the following.

Windows 10

[Network settings] from notification area (or [Settings] from Start menu) → [Network & Internet] → [Wi-Fi] → [Manage WiFi Settings] → [Manage known networks]

Note: If multiple profiles of the same name exist (it will happen if you connected to the same wireless network using multiple wireless adapters because SSID of wireless network is used for a profile name), such profiles will not be differentiated and will be deleted in bulk.

Windows 8.1 Update

[Settings] in Charm → [Change PC settings] → [Network] → [Connections] → [Manage known networks] in [Wi-Fi]
