This morning we had a need to disable a Wi-Fi card quickly. A users laptop was defaulting to using the Wi-Fi adapter rather than their cabled connection and it was causing problems. The Wi-Fi card was flapping about causing problems for their VPN which was geared for the wired connection and….well…you get the picture.
So we knocked together a quick Labtech script using WMIC to disable any Wi-Fi cards on the PC.
Open up a command prompt with administrative privileges and run the following command.
wmic path win32_networkadapter where NetConnectionID="Wi-Fi" call disable
Below you’ll find a link to the same command in the form of a Labtech script.Download Labtech XML Script
