Discovering WLAN / SSID that device is connecting to:

Hey All,

With the current state of business continuity, in regards to the necessity for remote work capabilities, I have a situation that is a little unconventional and I wasn't able to find anything on the forums, poking around in the Kace SMA, or via Google that was much help.

We issue some of our employees corporate cell phones that have a limited data plan. I have been tasked with trying to determine if certain users are overusing / abusing their hotspot capabilities and causing unnecessarily high costs to the company. I am able to see the IP Address the laptops have and the VPN IP; however, I do not see information pertaining to the SSID, which would give a bit more information as to which user(s) may be the cause of this. Yes, I have other means available, but I do not wish to be going through network and VPN logs, reaching out to our wireless provider, and manually checking each user / device. Any insight into how I may be able to accomplish this via the SMA? Thanks, all!

You should be able to accomplish this with some powershell if you are using Windows endpoints.


Basic details: Get-NetIPConfiguration

Selective details: Get-NetIPConfiguration | select -property InterfaceAlias,IPv4Address,@{n='Name';e={Netprofile.Name}}

You can use a custom inventory with a command execution launching powershell to grab the information.

Some other powershell commands I have found useful for network info:



Try mixing some them up or adjusting the commands to your own preference.
