NetSetMan - Disabling and enabling individual Network Interfaces

Hi all
I´ve got an Intel Server Pro 1000 PT Quad Adapter
I´m running VISTA Home Premium 32BIT
Netsetman ver 2.5.2 installed
I need to have the ability to change IP settings on various NICS in order to get internet access through different routes.
NETSET Manager seems the perfect solution especially as a non technical person will be left with the computer...
With NETSET Manager:
I´ve noticed that persistant route is all that seems to change when i toggle between "activating" each interface. It´s almost too good to be true. However the OS seems to "get confused" upon testing. By that I mean the previously accessed gateway will still reply to ICMP even though another adapter is activated..

 The answer (i think) would be to run ,as part of a  script, the ability to simply disable the unneeded interfaces.
If I disable the "unwanted" interfaces manually, the whole thing works perfectly with the packets routing down the only enabled NIC
For that I´ve decided to look at "devcon.exe"
An example of one of my four scripts is seen below. It is indended to enable the one interface and disable the other three..
My problem is that the utility disables ALL four interfaces :-(
Anybody familiar with devcon got any additional scripts or ideas?
Also I cant add 4 seperate NICS as the form factor of the PC is too small. It has to be this quad port NIC
Help appreciated
Thanks in advance
