- To see more details about your network, write
netsh WLAN show profile name="Name_of_Network" key=clearand press enter.

- Click on Network and Sharing Center.
- In a new window, click on the active network (Connection Wi-Fi)
- A new tiny window (Wi-Fi Status) pops up; you click on the Wireless Properties.
