Can anyone supply me with a script that can be run on windows xp/me/98/95 that will automatically change the static ip to dynamic (obtain IP automatically) by just inserting a disk and run the script. If it can be run automatically when you put in the disk then will even be better. This script must also configure the Internet explorer to never dial a connection and do not use proxy in the LAN setting.

Thanks in advance

netsh interface ip set address name = "Local Area Connection" source = DHCP

netsh interface ip set dns name = "Local Area Connection" source = DHCP

netsh interface ip show config

pause

This is something like what you are looking for.... if u do a good search on google u can find a hundred scripts to help you....
as for the lan settings and never dial up u can use group policies...
not exactly sure how to change them in the script... sorry
This should help u drastically though

Ok i know how to do this but the script will not be a technical one... I am searching for a good one... I can do it with shell scripting... It will work but not very technical..

Nyck, it did not work for my computer. It went to some where else. Anyway, I will still award you with the points that you deserved for your effort. Let me know if you have any better ways.

Nyck, can you help me to check if there is any other ways that can configure  Internet Explorer. The script that you supply to me cannot  really work. It configure the the wrong things and even when to configure other things that I did not wanted.

Thanks Thanks
