Change, Edit, Modify your Network Adapter Config via Command Prompt

Command Prompt is a very powerful and fast way to do many things on your computer. However most people find it hard to use do to the fact they do not know any of the commands to carry out what they want to do.

We are going to talk about the setting of your network adapter via command prompt:

To View your TCP/IP settings:

“netsh interface ip show config”

Change TCP/IP Settings:

“netsh interface ip set address name=”Local Area Connection” static 192.168.0.100 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1.1”

Export your current settings to a txt file:

“netsh –c interface dump > C:’locatio1.txt”

Import your IP settings:

“netsh –f c:’location1.txt”

Set your IP address to DHCP:

“netsh interface ip set address “Local Area Connection” dhcp”

Set your DNS and WINS addresses:

“netsh interface ip set dns “Local Area Connection” static 192.168.0.100”

Set your DNS to dynamically obtain it’s DNS settings:

“netsh interface ip set dns “Local Area Connection” dhcp”

As you can tell the “netsh” command is very powerful.

    Mr. Dopp.
    If you were thinking of making a back up of your DVD’s.
    What program would you use to rip them to your hard drive and then view them on your i pod?
    I ask you because it seems that you are some kind of computer god or such.
