“the best way plans of mice and men often go awry”

Dropped something off at the post office thinking I had more than enough time to get home before a conference call.  Hence, the quote.

Downtown Windows 8 was showing way to many possible WI-FI connections and the one I used before DIDN’T make the list.  So this was my quick action (windows 7 was much easier to manage WI-FI networks in my opinion).

command prompt:

netsh wlan show profiles


the name of the network I wanted was in the list!

to connect to it(no quotes were needed for the name):

netsh wlan connect name=<the profile name>
