win-wlan-data-script

A script to parse the output of the 'netsh wlan show interfaces' cmd & turn it into a more interesting format

Windows WLAN Data Powershell script

Run this script from a Windows powershell (as admin) and get the output from the "netsh wlan show interfaces" command ouput in CSV form. Pipe the output in to a filename to save as a file:

cd [dir_where_script_is_installed]

.\wlan_data_v0.02.ps1 >> c:\temp\wlan_data.csv

Alternatively, to monitor the output at the same time as writing to the CS file, us this command in the Powershell:

cd [dir_where_script_is_installed]

.\wlan_data_v0.02.ps1 | Tee-Object -file test.csv

Inspired by Matt Frederick's blog post: https://finesine.com/2016/09/17/using-netsh-wlan-show-interfaces-to-monitor-associationroaming/

Note: to run Powershell scripts, you will most likely need to update the execution policy on your machine. Open a Powershell window as an adminsitrator on your machine and temporarily set the policy to unrestricted with this command:

	Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -scope Process

   Once your powershell window is closed, this policy change is no
   longer in effect and your machine will return to the previous
   policy. You can check your execution policy by running the 
   following command in Powershell:

   Get-ExecutionPolicy

Note2: This has only been tested on a Win 10 machine. As this is parsing command output, it is very likely to break easily. It would be nice to pull this data out via a more "official" route to make this more robust.
