WLAN Report under Windows 10
To create a WiFi History Report under Windows 10, you must run a command line tool.

You must first run a command prompt. Search for’cmd’ and right-click on what appears. Select Run as administrator.
You must now enter the following command :
netsh wlan view wlanreport
Press Enter and the system generates the report in HTML format.
You can view the report here in the File Explorer:
The ProgramData folder is a hidden folder, and if you want to access it, click the ‘View’ tab and click ‘Hidden Items’.
Click on the HTML report file to open it in your browser.
You can now see the connection details for the last three days of your WiFi usage. The red circle indicates an error. If you select it, you get more information about the error. This is an interactive report and moving the mouse pointer gives you more information about the object.
