VBScript runtime error: Object required

On line 75 Char 2,  I receive an error on the code below Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Object required. It's referring either to "objDisable.DoIt" or "objEnable.DoIt" . Can some one help me ? I know I must be missing something easy but I just can't find it.


The code is attempting to toggle my wireless NIC on or off without having to use Device Manager.

Code Below

NICToggle.wsf This script looks at your ‘Local Area Connection’
and enables it if disabled, disables it if enabled.
Script for toggling network connection on/off

<example> C:\>cscript ToggleNIC.wsf
<object id = "objShell" progid = "Shell.Application"/>
set objShell=CreateObject("shell.application")
<script language = "VBScript">
'Toggle NIC on or off
Option Explicit
Dim objCP, objEnable, objDisable, colNetwork
Dim clsConn, clsLANConn, clsVerb
Dim strNetConn, strConn, strEnable, strDisable
Dim bEnabled, bDisabled

strConn = "Local Area Connection"
'strEnable = "En&able" strEnable = "&Aktivieren"
'strDisable = "Disa&ble" strDisable = "&Deaktivieren"
Set colNetwork = Nothing
Set colNetwork = objShell.Namespace(NETWORK_CONNECTIONS)

' Network Connections (independent of country/language)
If colNetwork is Nothing Then
WScript.Echo "Network folder not found"
End If

Set clsLANConn = Nothing
For Each clsConn in colNetwork.Items
' In case the LAN is named “connection 2”, etc.

If Instr(LCase(clsConn.name),LCase(strConn)) Then
Set clsLANConn = clsConn
Exit For
End If

'WScript.Echo clsLANConn

If clsLANConn is Nothing Then
WScript.Echo "Network Connection not found"
End If

bEnabled = True
Set objEnable = Nothing
Set objDisable = Nothing
For Each clsVerb in clsLANConn.verbs  

'WScript.Echo clsVerb.name

If clsVerb.name = strEnable Then
Set objEnable = clsVerb
bEnabled = False
End If

If clsVerb.name = strDisable Then
Set objDisable = clsVerb
bEnabled = True
End If

If bEnabled Then
WScript.Echo clsLANConn & " Disabled"
WScript.Echo clsLANConn & " Activated"
End If

'Give the connection time to stop/start
WScript.Sleep 1000

Well, strEnable and strDisable are both commented out in your code. So, during your loop odds are that objEnable and objDisable never get set to anything.
