you can use NETSH to set the network config, it isnt really powershell but you can use it in Powershell just the same.

See here for how to do it: http://www.petri.co.il/configure_tcp_ip_from_cmd.htm

no its basically going to be something like a script that sets up the ip address the subnet and gateway with defaults for subnet 255.255.255.0 if nothing entered


if second nic is required press yes

insert ip adress for second nic


etc

Ah ok... that makes it harder, when we did somthig like this i just copy pasted commandlines that set all the settings, dont really see the point of having popup dialougs, i just had an excelsheet ready and copy pasted from left screen to right screen, everything ready so no need to do any typing.
