I am working on using wmi filters for some network intelligence features, and I 
am running into a problem when determining the SSID of the wireless network 
that a computer is connected to .  I  want to check if a computer is connected 
to the bilsky wireless network.

This is the query I used:

root\WMI;SELECT * FROM MSNdis_80211_ServiceSetIdentifier WHERE Ndis80211SsId = 
"<bilsky"

the problem is that I can't figure out the right way to enter my ssid for the 
comparison.  Ndis... returns an ascii array, which is equivalent to the string 
<bilsky.

What would be the proper syntax?

thanks
