To use RSoP to view wireless network policy assignments for a computer

  1. Open Resultant Set of Policy.

    An RSoP query runs in logging mode. For more information, see Related Topics.

  2. In the console tree, click Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies.


    • Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies

    The list of all wireless network policies is displayed in the details pane.

  3. To view detailed policy settings for the wireless network policy that is being applied, in the details pane, right-click the policy with the highest precedence, and then click Properties.


  • To open RSoP, click Start, click Run, type rsop.msc, and then click OK.

  • To run an RSoP query in logging mode, see Related Topics.

  • The RSoP console displays detailed wireless network policy settings for only the policy that is being applied. The detailed policy settings include the list of preferred wireless networks that clients can connect to and, for each preferred wireless network, the wireless network key settings, whether 802.1X authentication is enabled, and, if so, the authentication settings.

  • The details pane in RSoP provides two ways to indicate which wireless network policy is being applied:

    • The lower the number in the Precedence column, the higher the precedence of the wireless network policy. The wireless network policy with a precedence number of 1 is the policy that is being applied.

    • In the Name column, the folder icon that precedes the name of the wireless network policy that is being applied contains a green dot.

  • To hide or display columns in the RSoP console, see Related Topics.
