On Linux all guides show that the wireless interface is wlan0, but on windows there is no obvious documentation on how you discover the name of your interface.

I'm trying to run this command to test packet injection aireplay-ng -9 wlan0

netsh wlan show all

should show you information about all wireless adapters.

    When I run that command, I get Interface name: Wi-Fi - is that what I'm looking for? It's hard to tell when every command I run simply returns Adapter <xxxx> not supported. – end-user Oct 29 '15 at 10:54

To get a list of interfaces:

netsh wlan show interfaces

To get a list of networks:

netsh wlan show networks
