Import and Export Wi-Fi profiles on Windows 7 and Windows 8

sábado, 16 de febrero de 2013 Sin comentarios



In order to import and export Wi-Fi profiles on a Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC, we must make use of the Net Shell (Netsh), so we must run from an admin command line the command «netsh».

Once we´re inside the net Shell, run the following commands:

-To get the Wireless networks saved on our PC:

wlan show profiles

-To export the saved wireless networks:

wlan export profile

-To export one single wireless network saved on our pc:

netsh wlan export profile name=”network name” folder=”destination folder”

-To import one single wireless network:

netsh wlan add profile filename=”network name.xml”

The wireless networks that are exported, are in XML format, so if what we want is to add another network to the system as a deployment, we can get one of the exported files as a pattern to follow and modify the desired values.

Hope you find this info useful.
