Registry

For detailed information about many registry entries, see:

The Windows registry contains many network-related settings. By using the System Registry WMI provider, you can directly read and change registry settings in a script by using StdRegProv in the \Root\Default namespace.

Table 48 lists the more important registry subkeys for scripting networking-related settings.
