In windows you can go  Network and Dial-up->Connections->Advanced->Advanced Settings->Connections
dialog box where you can set priorities for connections.
The dialog box says:
"Connections are listed in the order in which they are accessed by DNS and
other network services".
In "Connections:" part you can set the order of  accessed.
my question is how to changed it in c/c++ (2000 / XP).

This stuff is almost certainly stored in the registry, where the sorting is done using an incrementing key of some sort (connection1, connection2, connection3, etc) or they are listed in order within the value (using a REG_MULTI_SZ type for example). If you use regedit to search your registry for the names listed in this dialog you should be able to find exactly where this is stored and then rearrange the order using plain old registry operations.

For example, one key I found is called DhcpServer and the value is "10.0.3.8 10.0.3.7" .

I can't seem to get to exactly the dialog you list in your question so I can't pin down the registry key exactly.

If your needs are more complicated you will probably have to use the COM interfaces such as  INetCfg, IEnumNetCfgComponent, etc., to find and change this information. There is sample code in the DDK that shows how to use these (look for a program called "bindview").

Hope this helps...

After some poking around I found a couple things that may help you.

The connection list appears to be stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

INetConnection looks interesting, but the only INetXXX interface I could find with ordering abilities was INetCfgComponentBindings [methods MoveBefore() and MoveAfter()].
