After replacing an old motherboard with a new one, the NIC is different, has a new MAC address and generally needs a new TCP/IP configuration. However the old NIC is still somewhere there with its designated IP address and the rest.
Question: is it possible to retrieve those settings (most important is the static IP address) for an old network card that is no longer present in the system?
- Open run and type regedit
- Browse- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces]
You’ll find your card and their configuration settings.
