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?

Solution:

  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.
