available wireless networks

is there a way of detecting available wireless networks and getting there MAC address and signal strengtth? I have seen a previous post that suggests using .NET, just hoping there is an easier way. Unfortunatly its on XP. if it was a later version of windows i could use net wlan at the command prompt.

 

the project is in LV8.6 on xp

 

Thanks in advance 

Please remember to accept any solutions and give kudos, Thanks

Hello,

 

Could you make use of the wlanapi?

It looks as though it might take a bit of playing to get it to work but you should be able to call the DLL in LabVIEW.

 

Is this of any help?

I have created a Community Example Program which probably suits your needs. It performs the scanning of WiFi hotspots nearby, lists them in a ring, shows available network profiles and connects to a chosen hotspot (kudos welcomeSmiley Wink) :
