There is a key in the registry that has many sub-keys of "0001" and "0002" and so on, called "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\NetTrans\"

From what I understand, these "000x" keys are "Profiles".

The question I have is - "What is the 'profile' for, and how do I determine which one I am using?

Each "profile" is represents a network binding to a specific protocol.  These are protocols like TCP/TP, NetBEUI, IPX/SPX... If for example, you have a network card, it is bound at system startup. A dialup TCP/IP connection gets bound when you dial the service.

Check out the following microsoft KB articles:

I have one more comment if you don't mind... Is there any way to find out which modem is on which profile?
