First we need to find the current TCP/IP configuration using ipconfig /allcommand. A sample output is copied below.

C:\>ipconfig /all

C:\>

Here ipconfig /all command displays two network interfaces. A physical interface (NIC) and an ISATAP (Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol) tunneling interface.

Here Local Area Connection is using an Automatic Private IP Address (APIPA).

Before start configuring the TCP/IP settings of network interface card, we need to know which interface we need to configure.

To know the interface index number, use the netsh command as shown below.

C:\>netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces

Idx Met MTU State Name

— — —– ———– ——————-

2 10 1500 connected Local Area Connection

1 50 4294967295 connected Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1

Now we want to configure the the following TCP/IP settings to the Local Area Connection.

1) IP Address – 192.168.100.21

2) Subnet Mask – 255.255.255.0

3) Default Gateway – 192.168.100.1

4) Primary DNS Server 192.168.100.12

5) Secondary DNS Server 192.168.100.13

To configure the first three settings run the netsh command as shown below.

C:\>netsh interface ipv4 set address name=”2″ source=static address=192.168.100.21 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.100.1

To configure TCP/IP settings with primary and secondary DNS Server IP address, use the following command.

C:\>netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=”2″ address=192.168.100.12 index=1

C:\>netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name=”2″ address=192.168.100.13 index=2

The primary DNS server’s index is 1, the secondary DNS server’s index is 2. Usewinsserver instead of DNS Server in above command to configure a WINS server

To remove a DNS Server from the TCP/IP configuration, use the following command.

C:\>netsh interface ipv4 delete dnsserver name=”2″ address=192.168.1.13

To revert to dynamic IP address, use the following command.

C:\> netsh interface ip set address name=”2″ dhcp
