Is there a VMware Web Services API command to change the VLAN assigned to a Virtual Nic on a Virtual Machine in VMware

I am looking for a way to change the Virtual LAN that is assigned to a Virtual Network card in a Virtual Machine.  Currently we are starting up our VMs from templates that already have a NIC card assigned to a Virtual LAN.  There are however multiple LANs available in VCenter.  I am looking to see if there ia a command available in the Web Services SDK for VMware where I can dynamically instruct the Virtual Machine I started from that template to change the LAN it's Nic card is attached to.    If not the Web Services API is there another solution where this can be done?
