Small window Wifi utility

We were looking to get a Wifi information on a windows 10 for remote troubleshooting. After testing with netsh wlan show interface, I did some research and stumble on this code on a Microsoft msdn site page and modify it to display channel number and card rssi value (which is different from the signal quality %)

The code is available download source code  and a standalone executable executable download

I have notice that with a macbook running bootcamp. the channel is not displayed when the connection is on the 5 Ghz network.

Also to work, the workstation must have a active wifi connection.

The output is as follow


The RSSI value is obtain via the WlanQueryInterface function

The calculated RSSI value is based on WLAN_ASSOCIATION_ATTRIBUTES the formula is calculated-rssi=-100+(signal-Quality/2).

I did validate the value obtain on my Macbook in bootcamp and Mac OSx were the same.
