Management tool for Wi-Fi connection profiles
ManageWirelessNetworks is a free wifi program that was developed by NirSoft for PC devices. It aims to replicate the functions of Windows' built-in wireless network management tool while providing additional features of its own. This network manager enables users to configure various network profiles easily and with more information.
Similar to WiFi Profile Manager, ManageWirelessNetworks allows for seamless switching between multiple wireless connection profiles in addition to the various management options that it offers to its users. What's more, saved profiles can be exported and copied over to other Wi-Fi cards and devices as needed.
What can I do with ManageWirelessNetworks?
First and foremost, ManageWirelessNetworks is a portable program that does not require any installation or additional files or software in order to work. Simply run the executable file(.exe) that it comes with to start using it right away. The UI is simple and melds well with Windows' overall look and feel. The main windows will display all saved wireless network profiles together with various information about them, including its SSID, Authentication types, and Encryption protocol.
To start managing them, select one, and various options will appear at the top bar. Alternatively, the same choices can be accessed by a right-click to bring up its menu. From there, you can start making changes, such as renaming profiles and SSIDs or switch modes for authentication and encryption modes. You can even set the number of allowed connections for a particular profile and set a password for it.
Another thing is that if you want, you can opt to duplicate a specific profile, and copy it to another wireless card on a different machine so you won't have to manually set it up again. One thing to note, though, is that as its name suggests, ManageWirelessNetworks is a tool that is meant for wireless connections. For managing wired LAN connections, you best look elsewhere.
Simple yet powerful Wi-Fi profile manager
In summary, if you're looking for a tool that offers more ways to manage your wireless connection profile than what Windows gives, try out ManageWirelessNetworks. It's lightweight, portable, and simple to use while still providing plenty of options and features. Highly recommended.
