You could reset your password by setting the whole network up again ie (via here):
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=rambo key=rambo123 keyUsage=persistent
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=rambo key=rambo123 keyUsage=temporary
Although, if you've forgotten your password, all you need to do is (via here):
netsh wlan show ...
Before implementing any of this, it would be really helpful to know just what routing actually does.
Routing doesn't change network addresses. (Well, NAT does. And NAT can be performed while routing gets applied. However, if you want to learn how to do something, you should be trying to keep things simple. And it is best to think ...
Just use the key=clear parameter when exporting the profiles.
netsh wlan export profile key=clear
Now the passphrase/key will be stored in the XML file(s) in the clear. When you import the profile (as above), you will not be prompted for a passphrase.
pkgmgr is now replaced by dism.
Install telnet from command line (run it as administrator):
dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient
Then you can test TCP connection by:
telnet example.com 80
Had the same problem. Tried everything - updating Intel 5100 Wifi drivers, updating Windows 7, uninstalled and reinstalled devices and so on.
It turned out that the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter wasn't working.
To make sure it's working do the following:
Open an elevated Command Prompt window
Type: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow
Just use Putty it's tiny (and has a portable app version). It lets you specify port and can use telnet which is a TCP connection. It also has other useful functions like serial connections (no hyper terminal in Windows 7), SSH, And Rlogin. It even has a RAW function that lets establish RAW TCP connections.
Also just so your aware: Telnet is included in XP, ...
I had the same problem like you and finally found a solution:
The Problem is, that you need a special ad-hoc profile to connect to the network. For some weird reason you can't do that via gui anymore, but you can work direct with netsh wlan:
Create a new profile via gui (new connection in the nework center)
Choose "connect manual with a network"
Type in ...
You would use netsh http when modifying the configuration of http.sys,
which is totally different from the hosts file, working on a much lower
level of Windows. This level is the one that handles the running of
an HTTP server locally in your computer, so is concerned with requests
coming into your computer, rather than the ones going out to the Internet.
It seems your winsock is corrupted. A solution would be to log into another healthy PC and export the winsock and winsock2 registry keys only from
to a flash drive, import them to your local registry, reboot your machine. Else copy the winsock.dll files from another healthy PC. The DLL is be located at:
Something like this?
Save this as blockit.bat:
if "%1"=="list" (
netsh advfirewall firewall show rule Blockit | findstr RemoteIP
:: Deleting existing block on ips
netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name="Blockit"
:: Block new ips (while reading them from blockit.txt)
for /f %%i in (blockit.txt) do (
netsh advfirewall firewall ...
I've been looking for the same thing for a while now, unfortunately I can't seem to find anything in the netsh utility to do this. The best solution I was able to come up with was to disable then re-enable the interface through the netsh commands. There's a small delay (1-2 seconds) after enabling the interface where it won't list any networks, but that ...
Comma is a special character for PowerShell. In your case it is interpreted as a binary array operator. It creates array with two elements blockinboundalways and allowoutbound. PowerShell below v5 will separate array elements with space when array passed to native applications. The resulting command line passed to netsh will be following:
netsh advfirewall ...
I’m not sure but I guess you use PowerShell to loop over the array $IPArray and want to add every IP in this array to be the Remote IP of the firewall rule Block External IP’s.
If this is correct, the problem is that netsh does not have the option to add an IP, any set remoteip= command overwrites the previous entry. Therefore you overwrite the remote IP ...
By design, turning off a NIC is disallowed when done remotely.
Running with Psexec essentially runs the command as a local user, to bypass this restriction.
psexec.exe \remotecomputer netsh interface set interface "interfacename" disabled
If you need credentials:
psexec.exe \remotecomputer -u username -p password netsh interface set interface "...
You may have an unregistered or missing helper dll within netsh
Run netsh show helper from and administrator command prompt and scan the output for the advfirewall context. If it is missing, run netsh add helper AUTHFWCFG.DLL to restore it.
Full list of netsh helpers (contexts) you may want to register
advfirewall: netsh add helper AUTHFWCFG.DLL
The MSDN docs say for Windows Server 2003, you've to use httpcfg query ssl.
If you httpcfg is not available, you will have to install Windows Server 2003 support tools.
netsh http show sslcert is for Vista.
Leaving the existing IP Address and Subnet Mask is okay, because these will definitely be overwritten every time.
Since you're overwriting the IP and Subnet Mask anyway, just use netsh to delete the gateway in the same step. e.g.:
netsh interface ipv4 set address "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0 none
Here, you place none where ...
The key of the hosted network can be changed using this command:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork key=yourkey keyusage=temporary|persistent
See Netsh Commands for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) in Windows Server 2008 R2.
There are several methods to delete a hosted network.
Method 1 : Network and Sharing Center
Right click on the Network icon in the notification area () and
choose "Network and Sharing Center".
In the Network and Sharing Center windows, click on "Change Adapter settings",
to see all of your network connections. This will look like:
Select the Hosted ...
I was looking for an answer to this myself when I found your question. After reading the comments in harrymc's answer, I decided to test some things out myself. I found one way that was surprisingly simple, yet did exactly what you wanted:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<mySSID> key=
That command is no mistake, you just don't add ...
Nope, because the Firewall service isn't running. Enable it, add the rules with netsh, and then disable it when done. Or add via the registry as you have suggested.
Either way should be pretty painless to repeat once you've scripted it once.
Ryan is right in that the key has a machine-specific encryption. Here's a solution:
Open your XML file and locate the following line: <protected>true</protected>
Change it to: <protected>false</protected>
Under you will see encrypted line: <keyMaterial>01000000D08C9DDF0115D1118</keyMaterial>
Change it to your key in plain ...
The problem is that the encrypted password was encrypted with a machine-specific key on the machine you exported the config from. You could import that xml file back into the same machine and it would work just fine. But it won't work on a different machine because the 2nd machine doesn't have the same machine-specific key and can't decrypt the password.
If someone like me, was looking for PAN (Personal Area Network) via Bluetooth auto-connect, there is no native way that I have found. However, there exists (3) 3rd party solutions.
free. mixed results, some commands did not work with my adapter:
Bluetooth Command Line Tools
Potentially free (depending on hardware). Comes with 30 day trial, works well:
netsh firewall requires the Windows Firewall service, SharedAccess, to be running.
To remotely enable Remote Desktop, you'll need to edit the registry:
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server" /v "fDenyTSConnections" /t REG_DWORD /d 0
and reboot (shutdown -r -t 0). Afterwards, use qwinsta or netstat to verify.
