Wifi Network Backup Manager Utility

11/06/2011

After couple of years I was too lazy to do it, each time I format my computer or want to copy Wifi networks between my machine to another I faced a problem, there is easy way to copy network profiles so I’ve created a simple utility that allows you to Save and Load Wifi Network Profiles, using Native Wifi API through P/Invoke interop.wifi.icon

[DllImport("wlanapi.dll")]
public static extern int WlanGetProfile(
[In] IntPtr clientHandle,
[In, MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPStruct)] Guid interfaceGuid,
[In, MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPWStr)] string profileName,
[In] IntPtr pReserved,
[Out] out IntPtr profileXml,
[Out, Optional] out WlanProfileFlags flags,
[Out, Optional] out WlanAccess grantedAccess);

[DllImport("wlanapi.dll")]
public static extern int WlanGetProfileList(
[In] IntPtr clientHandle,
[In, MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPStruct)] Guid interfaceGuid,
[In] IntPtr pReserved,
[Out] out IntPtr profileList
);

So here it is, the tool will show you all saved Wifi profiles on your machine and allow you to save one or more to a local xml file.

So when I get to a new computer and I want him to obtain my Wifi network profiles…

Open the Wifi Network Backup Manager and load the WiFiBackup file

And now the new computer has the entire WiFi network list include passwords!

    Cannot get it to run on Win 7 Pro. After running a window opens and states that the WiFi Manager has stopped working and Windows is searching for a solution.
    Do you have any ideas?
    thanks,
    Mike

    When I run your WiFi Backup Manager only the program opens with no information at all, what is wrong?

    Im running WindowsXP and after running the software
    I get a screen where it should show my networks but it is blank.
    I have a load button showing, a save button and a save all but there is nothing showing to save.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    So, I downloaded the file and unzipped it and ran the installation. But I can’t find the file otr the icon to click on and run the utility. I’m using Vista.
    Please advise how I can get it to run.

    After load a xml previously saved, it seems that the “Wifi Backup” didnt save the Keys. The computer recognize the Connections on XML but when trying to connect it asks for the network key
