    How to Add or Remove Wireless Network from Allowed or Blocked Filter List in Windows 10


    If you have a PC with a wireless network adapter, you will see a list of available wireless networks in your area to select to connect to. The wireless networks will only appear if your PC has a wireless network adapter installed, the adapter is turned on, and the wireless access point is in range.

    If you have a lot of wireless access points within your area, then you could have a lot of SSIDs (network names) in your available wireless networks list.

    The allowed and blocked filter list allow you to add or remove any available wireless network's SSIDs (network names) you want to these lists to control which ones will display or not in Wi-Fi Available networks.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove wireless networks from the allowed or blocked filter list to hide or show in the available networks list for all users in Windows 10.

    OPTION ONE
    To Display List of Wireless Networks Currently in Allowed and Blocked Filters
    This option will display a list of wireless networks that you added to the allowed (Option One and blocked (Option Two) filter lists.

    This can be especially handy to see the list of wireless networks you added to the block list since they are no longer displayed in the visible available networks list anymore by default.


    1. Open a command prompt, and copy and paste the command below you want to use, and press Enter.
    (List all allowed and blocked wireless networks)
    netsh wlan show filters

    (List only all allowed wireless networks)
    netsh wlan show filters permission=allow

    (List only all blocked wireless networks)
    netsh wlan show filters permission=block
    2. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.

    OPTION TWO [/i] To Add or Remove a Wireless Network from Allowed Filter List
    If you add an available wireless network SSID to the allowed filter list, then the network will always be displayed and available to connect to if you should do Option Four below. Otherwise there's really no point in adding wireless networks to the allow list.

    You will not be able to add a wireless network to the allow list if the wireless network as already been added to the block list using Option Three below. You would have to remove the wireless network from the block list before you will be able to add it to the allow list.


    1. Open a step 2 or step 3 below for what you would like to do.


    2. To Add Available Wireless Network to Allow List
    A) In the command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter. Repeat this step for each Wi-Fi network you want to add. When finished, go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Note Substitute WLAN name in the command with the actual SSID of the wireless network.

    For example:
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    3. To Remove Wireless Network from Allow List
    A) In the command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter. Repeat this step for each Wi-Fi network you want to remove. When finished, go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Note Substitute WLAN name in the command with the actual SSID of the wireless network.

    For example:
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    4. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.





    OPTION THREE [/i] To Add or Remove a Wireless Network from Blocked Filter List
    If you add an available wireless network SSID to the blocked filter list, then the network will no longer be displayed in the visible available networks list, and can no longer be connected to.

    This can be handy if there are wireless networks that you do not want to see in the visible available networks list anymore.

    You will not be able to add a wireless network to the block list if the wireless network as already been added to the allow list using Option Two above. You would have to remove the wireless network from the allow list before you will be able to add it to the block list.


    1. Open a step 2 or step 3 below for what you would like to do.


    2. To Add Available Wireless Network to Block List
    A) In the command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter. Repeat this step for each Wi-Fi network you want to add. When finished, go to step 4 below. (see screenshots below)
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Note Substitute WLAN name in the command with the actual SSID of the wireless network.

    For example:

    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    3. To Remove Wireless Network from Block List
    A) In the command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter. Repeat this step for each Wi-Fi network you want to remove. When finished, go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Note Substitute WLAN name in the command with the actual SSID of the wireless network.

    For example:
    Code:
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    4. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.




    OPTION FOUR [/i] To Add All Not Allowed Wireless Networks to Denyall
    This option will set all available wireless networks that are not currently added to the allow (Option Two) and block (Option Three) list as denyall all at once. You can use Option Five below to undo this.

    This will effectively be the same as the block list. These networks will then no longer be displayed in the visible available networks list, and can no longer be connected to.

    This can be handy if you do not want to see any available wireless networks in the visible available networks list except those that you added to the allow list in Option Two.

    You will still be able to add a wireless network to the allow list using Option Six to temporarily see all blocked wireless networks can help make this easier to do.


    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure


    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]


    3. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.





    OPTION FIVE [/i] To Remove All Not Blocked Wireless Networks from Denyall
    This option is the default setting and will undo Option Four to allow the wireless networks to display in the visible available networks list, and be able to connect to again.

    Wireless networks that are currently added to the block list using Option Three above will not be affected, will still be on the block list.


    1. Open a command prompt.

    2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    netsh wlan delete filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure


    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]


    3. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.





    OPTION SIX [/i] To Hide or Show Blocked Wireless Networks in Visible Available Networks List
    This option will let you set to show or hide all blocked wireless networks (Option Three and Option Four) in the visible available networks list.


    1. Open a step 2 or step 3 below for what you would like to do.

    2. To Hide All Blocked Wireless Networks
    This is the default setting.

    A) In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, press Enter, and go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)

    netsh wlan set blockednetworks display=hide


    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    3. To Show All Blocked Wireless Networks
    A) In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, press Enter, and go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)

    netsh wlan set blockednetworks display=show


    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 [​IMG]

    4. When finished, you can close the command prompt if you like.

    That's it,
    Shawn

    Patrick,

    Use the procedure in
    Add or Remove Wireless Network from Filter in Windows 10 - TenForums


    In brief, run this in a Command prompt window

    netsh wlan add filter permission=block ssid="TheSSIDOfTheUndesirableWiFiNetwork" networktype=infrastructure

    Note that case is important - TheSSIDOfTheUndesirableWiFiNetwork is not the same as
    thessidoftheundesirablewifinetwork

    By the way, posts by "Microsoft" forum moderators are rarely even worth reading and hardly ever get you anywhere. We've been complaining about them for years but nothing ever gets done.

    Brink,

    Yes, it's a shame. There are hundreds of command combinations within netsh and so many have changed in Windows 10.
