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.
Log events of your wireless network in Windows
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.
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.
With the free Wireless Network Watcher you can keep an eye on your network and all connected devices.
