powershell interfaceindex new-netroute

Powershell to check -interfaceindex number put it into a variable then use the variable to apply static routes with new-netroute.

i have been looking at get-netipinterface and can display the info i need in the ifindex column i am however unsure how to get it into a variable and then use that to apply the static route.

with something like this New-NetRoute -DestinationPrefix "" -InterfaceIndex "variable" -NextHop

PS C:\Users\Adam> Get-NetIPInterface "work"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Like that, for example:
$IfAlias = 'Work'
If ($IfIndex = Get-NetIPInterface -InterfaceAlias $IfAlias -AddressFamily IPv4 | Select-Object -ExpandProperty ifIndex) {
	Write-Host "Network interface '$($IfAlias)' found at index $($IfIndex)."
	New-NetRoute -DestinationPrefix "" -InterfaceIndex $IfIndex -NextHop
} Else {
	Write-Error "Network interface '$($IfAlias)' not found!"
