Help with Regread for wireless connections

5 posts in this topic

I'm a noob here so please excuse me if this has been covered already.. I've done a bit of searching. I'm imaging a number of different model dell laptops and desktops w/ and w/o wireless nics. I've come up with a solution to add our wireless profiles as well as selecting and connecting to the network automatically. My issue is being able to distinguish which ones have wireless nics and which ones do not.

Basically if it has wireless I need it to run my other scripts and if it does not then just move on. Regread looks like it'd come in handy for this situation.

"HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"

Is the registry key I found but since we have different wireless nics the keys change from there, and I just need to determine if it has "Wireless Network Connection" or not in those sub keys to run. I can retrieve the names of the connections running this script I found on here but got a bit lost trying to write a conditional statement from there. Sorry I'm a bit long winded but hopefully I was at least clear. Thanks for any help in advance.

Dim $i

;Get Network Connection Names

$base = "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"

While 1

$i += 1

$key = RegEnumKey($base, $i)

If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop

$name = RegRead($base & "\" & $key & "\Connection", "Name")

ConsoleWrite($name&@CRLF)

WEnd

Any help out there?? I just basically need to use Regread to see if the name "Wireless Network Connections" is in the listed key and if it is run the specified script. Otherwise, just skip ahead.

This is working for me

;
Local $i = 0
;Get Network Connection Names
$base = "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"
While 1
$i += 1
$key = RegEnumKey($base, $i)
If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
$name = RegRead($base & "\" & $key & "\Connection", "Name")
If StringInStr($name, "Wireless") Then
   MsgBox(0, "Result",  $Name)
EndIf
WEnd
;

Glad it worked for you.

By the way You can speed that up by adding one line of code to exit the loop if a wireless is found.

;
Local $i = 0
;Get Network Connection Names
$base = "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"
While 1
$i += 1
$key = RegEnumKey($base, $i)
If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
$name = RegRead($base & "\" & $key & "\Connection", "Name")
If StringInStr($name, "Wireless") Then
   MsgBox(0, "Result",  $Name)
   ExitLoop
EndIf
WEnd
;
