I want to automate the "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks" page in Windows through Powershell or any other automated procedures, to change my wireless adapter's mode to all the available modes and check whether the adapter gets connected successfully.

I was able to open until "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections" through command prompt commands(control /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter, control ncpa.cpl, control netconnections). But I'm unable to code to open the settings page.

The full naviagation that I want to automate is "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks > Adapter Properties > Configure > Advanced" and then I would like to change adapter's mode to the various 802.11 modes. I dont know Powershell.Thanks in advance.

If you mean 802.11a vs 802.11b, etc, this question might help: stackoverflow.com/questions/8323949/… –  Tanner Jul 9 '14 at 14:49
