I have a script that I use to switch the IP Address, Mask, DNS, and GW on my laptop.  I have to do this because the network schema is different at home and work.

SO...maybe this can help!

You will have to modify the interface names to match your NIC interface names.

This is the command
netsh interface ip set dns "local area connection" static 62.215.6.51 primary
Put the above command in a batch file.
Put secondary for secondary dns address.
For second network card the name might be "local area connection 2"

Sorry, try this command
NETSH INTERFACE IP ADD DNS "LOCAL AREA CONNECTION" 62.215.6.5 INDEX=2

Open a command prompt, run this command:
     netsh interface ip dump

This will give you a script to use to create your own batch file to modify your network config.  I have copied mine in the "code snippet" window.

NOTE:  My wireless interface is called "Wireless - Built In Card" - you will likely be called something else...just look for it and you can modify the code.  
netsh
pushd interface ip
set address name="Wireless - Built In Card" source=static addr=10.0.1.22 mask=255.255.255.0
set address name="Wireless - Built In Card" gateway=10.0.1.1 gwmetric=0
set dns name="Wireless - Built In Card" source=static addr=172.16.1.7 register=PRIMARY
add dns name="Wireless - Built In Card" addr=172.16.1.8 index=2
set wins name="Wireless - Built In Card" source=static addr=none
popd
exit

Open in new window
