Log events of your wireless network in Windows


To get a quick overview of whether your radio network is running stably, whether there have been any special events and what the current configuration looks like, you can have Windows prepare a report.

This summarizes the events of the past three days and the configuration of all existing network adapters in a common report in the form of an HTML file.

You create the report with a command on the command line: Type cmd in the input field of the taskbar, right-click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator”. Now enter the command netsh wlan show wlanreport. Windows runs some scripts and then reports “Report written in C: ProgramData Microsoft Windows WlanReport wlan-report-latest.html”.

The Windows WLAN report includes, among other things, a list of all events that the operating system has registered in your wireless network.

The Windows WLAN report includes, among other things, a list of all events that the operating system has registered in your wireless network.

Switch to Explorer and open the HTML file mentioned; it usually opens in your standard browser. It now shows you a long list of information about your PC, the logged in user and the network adapter. Below is data on the average duration of the network connections of this computer – always related to the last three days – as well as on the registered events. You can use this information to track malfunctions in your WLAN, for example.
