NirSoft just released a new free portable tool for Windows, called NetworkInterfaceView, that displays the details of all the network devices you have ever installed on your system. Not only these you see and listed in the Network Connections window, but also those that had connected on your system at one point, such as USB wireless network adapters. Nice tool but not sure how much useful it is and in which scenario you will be finding it useful. Feel free to share if you have some good ideas.
For every network interface found on your system, the following information will be displayed within the tool.
- Device Name
- Connection Name
- IP Address Information (IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DHCP, Name Servers)
- MAC address
- Interface GUID
- Many more.
You can double click the individual interface on the list to have a detail view.
You can also export all information to XML/HTML/CSV/Tab-Delimited files, or to the clipboard and then paste them into other programs like Excel.
Like all NirSoft utilities, you can run NetworkInterfaceView as a command line as well with a list of switches you can choose from.
NetworkInterfaceView works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 8. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
