  • Changing Gateway

    I have an existing gateway on my LAN that I need to change to a new IP.(Windows Network) I want to change this gateway on all workstations remotely without having to go to each machine. I look at the NETSH command but I don't see anything to change it on all machine at once or when the pc comes up on the network. I guess what I'm asking is this possible to do this??

    Thank you.

    You may be able to put the following command in a logon, shutdown, or logoff script:

    netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" gateway=x.x.x.x gwmetric=1

    In the above example I'm assuming that you haven't change the default name of the nic to something else. Maybe someone else can chime in and provide a better solution.

      I guess a shutdown or a startup script is the best solution.
      Maybe it's better to migrate straight away to DHCP.
