Determine if endpoint is on Ethernet or Wifi

Hello All,

Is there a way to get Determined whether endpoint is connected through Ethernet or Wifi. Using BigFix Analysis.

Thanks in advance.

Hello @patch_bigfix, In “BES Inventory and License” site, see if the analysis called “Network Information (Windows)” can assist with this request. It has the following properties:

  • DHCP Servers
  • DNS Servers
  • Domain/Workgroup
  • Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) Enabled
  • MAC Addresses
  • Subnet Masks
  • Wireless SSID
  • Wireless Encryption Status

Standard relevance can do this:

exists (adapters of network) whose (exists wifi of it)

If you extract the mac address the client used when registering, you can find the associated adapter then check to see if it supports wifi:

(exists wifi of it | false) of adapters whose (mac address of it = (registration mac address of client)) of networks

This is a quick run at it, but should work for you.
