Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Use a function in Windows 8 to show network adapter status information.
How can I use Windows PowerShell in Windows 8 to find network adapter status information, such as link speed and duplexing?
Use the Get-NetAdapter function, and select the appropriate properties, for example:
Get-NetAdapter | SELECT name, status, speed, fullduplex | where status -eq 'up'
I'd prefer see the Interface Description rather than the name and the speed in Gbps. I tried:
Get-NetAdapter | SELECT InterFaceDescription, Status, LinkSpeed, FullDuplex | where Status -eq 'up'
Why does the above first display the default fields as if I had typed:
Get-NetAdapter | where Status -eq 'up'
and then display the selected fields in list format?
And what would be the syntax to do what I am trying to do?
@NetPilot hmmmmmm. On my laptop the first command returns:
InterFaceDescription Status LinkSpeed FullDuplex
The second command returns:
Name InterfaceDescription ifIndex Status
So it is not the default display. I am not certain how you are getting something different.
