How to find the Wireless Channel of the Access Point you are connected to, using netsh

    Have you ever tried figuring out the channel of the Wireless Access Point you’re CURRENTLY connected to?  If you’re in a office/corporate environment and have several APs set up in the same area that share the same SSID, knowing which specific AP you’re connected to for troubleshooting can be a pain in the butt.

    For Windows users, try this:

    In Command Prompt: “netsh wlan show interfaces” (without the quotes)

    This is the easiest way I’ve found to quickly help me diagnose which AP I’m connected to when several share the same SSID.

    Anyone know an easier way?
