Determine if the Platform has a Wired Interface

The following steps describe how to examine the capabilities of the Ethernet ports of the platform to see if there is a wired interface on the platform.


Starting with Intel AMT Release 9.5., a platform may have only a wireless interface. This use case applies to those platforms as well.


1.  Enumerate the instances of CIM_EthernetPort.

2.  If there is an instance of CIM_EthernetPort with a DeviceID equal to “Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0”, the port is a wired interface.

You can execute this snippet by inserting it into the execution template found here.


$portIsWirelessInterface =$false

foreach($ethernetPortItem in$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("SELECT * FROM CIM_EthernetPort").Enumerate())


    $deviceID =$ethernetPortItem.Object.GetProperty("DeviceID")

    if($deviceID -like "Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0")


          $portIsWirelessInterface =$true
