Windows IP settings from old Windows network adapters after card replacement

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?


  1. Open run and type regedit
  2. Browse- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces]

You’ll find your card and their configuration settings.
