i have a batch file to change my ip settings. so far it looks like it's working........... partially. what it does is change my nic settings from dhcp to static ip and assigns an ip address and subnet mask and default gateway. when i run ipconfig it shows up at static. When I look at the settings in network places, on the properties tab for tcp/ip those check boxes haven't changed. what dos command sets this value and changes the nic from dhcp to static in network places?
