Detailed Description

The Set-NetIPInterface cmdlet modifies an IP interface, including Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), IPv6 neighbor discovery settings, router settings and Wake On LAN (WOL) settings.

If you do not specify any parameters, this cmdlet sets all of the IP interface properties on the computer, including virtual interfaces and loopback interfaces.

Parameters

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_NetIPInterface

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • None

Examples

Example 1: Modify an interface by the index value

This command modifies an IP interface object by using the interface index value of 12. The command also disables DHCP on the interface.


PS C:\> Set-NetIPInterface –InterfaceIndex 12 –Dhcp Disabled

Example 2: Modify the interface metrics

This command modifies all of the network adapters on the computer with a link speed of 100 Mbps and sets the interface metric on them to 21.


PS C:\> Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object –FilterScript {$_.LinkSpeed –Eq "100 Mbps"} | Set-NetIPInterface –InterfaceMetric 21
