What Wireless Access Points Has My Computer Accessed?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Is there a log on a computer (Windows Vista specifically) which can tell me historically the IP addresses of wifi hotspots that have been accessed?

This was asked by a friend of mine an piqued my interest somewhat, but I can seem to find any references - I keep getting offered to buy various routers when I use search engines!

Take a look in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces - these aren't necessarily ones you have connected to, but everything it has seen. They are XMl profiles and if you open them in notepad or a text editor, you can see the SSID of the devices the nic has seen.
