Note that this is just windows only, and will not work on macOS.  I don't have a linux box with a physical wireless adapter to verify linux.

The author tags their post with the platforms the query will work on.  IN this case only the Windows tag was used so I assume it would not work on either Mac or Linux.

Thank you



Yeah, I only have windows machines to run it on so almost all my queries are windows only :(.

I tried on Linux, and it's not working.

id.type = 1 for eth and wifi interfaces.

Perhaps we could check if the first letter of the interface name is 'w' ?
