Hey all. Many of us are computer techs/hobbyists of some sort or another. Things have changed over the past 4-5 years. What are your current essential programs you bring with you on jobs, via CD/Live CD and USB/Portable Apps, etc.? Is UBCD still a relevant diagnostic tool?

If you know how to apply the listed tools for troubleshooting and diagnostic purposes you will a good step ahead with respect to troubleshooting.

And if you are really looking for depth take a look at the netsh command. Especially if you work with lots of wireless devices.

The command "Netsh WLAN show WLANreport" will provide an overwhelming amount of wireless network related information.

The report is created in .html format and stored in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WLANReport\WLAN-report-latest.html. Open with a browser.
