How to control Wi-Fi networks from Command Prompt on Windows 11

On Windows 11, it’s possible to view and manage wireless networks through Command Prompt, and in this guide, you will learn how. While you can use the Settings app to configure network settings quite easily through a user-friend interface, you can perform more advanced tasks using commands. For instance, you can recover the password of any profile saved on the device. You can view rich details about a specific profile or adapter and create reports to troubleshoot and solve common connectivity problems.

Regardless of the reason, Windows 11 (similar to previous versions) includes the “Network Shell” (netsh) command tool that features the “wlan” option to view, configure, and troubleshoot wireless networks.
