is tailored for network administrators who want to check out the past and current wireless connections for a particular workstation, retrieving a rich set of details that can be merged into a single, clear HTML report.
Designed as a reporting tool only, WifiHistoryView cannot be used for performing any wireless networking tasks.
Its mission is simple: it extracts information about active and inactive Wi-Fi connections from the Windows event log (‘Microsoft-Windows-WLAN-AutoConfig/Operational’), displaying it all in a simple and organized manner so that you can easily create a report and use it as you please.
As mentioned above, this particular application does not only show you details about the current Wi-Fi connection but retrieves data regarding every network or Wi-Fi hotspot your computer has ever been connected to, provided the Windows event log has not been emptied in the meantime.
For each connection event, it displays a plethora of information, such as the date and the time the event occurred, the network adapter name, the interface GUID and the local MAC address, the SSID (network name), and the BSSID of the access point or the router. Alongside these, you can check out the network security settings (authentication and encryption), the reason for disconnecting, and the event ID.
While WifiHistoryView is just a reporting tool, it is surely an asset in the toolset of a network administrator. It can display a list of all the wireless connection events, which is particularly useful for network diagnose.
Aside from reading the Windows event log for Wi-Fi connections, WifiHistoryView can also read the connection history from an external log file, displaying it in the same way. All this information can be easily exported to various formats, such as TXT, CSV, XML or HTML. Furthermore, you can choose the columns to include in the report.
