Is there a way to start the Local Area Connection properties, cos i want to set EAP type

I know how to start the network connection window but i cant get to lan properties.

Any ideas?

Using the netsh.exe command from the commandline may be helpful. Examples-

netsh int ip set addr lo static 192.168.0.23 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1 1

netsh int ip set dns lo static 4.2.2.4 primary

netsh int ip set addr lo dhcp

netsh int ip set dns lo dhcp

As close as I can get to opening local area connection is....

%SystemRoot%\System32\control.exe /NCpa.cpl

but I can't find that exact command to open it up... anybody else???

Various control panel extensions... http://perso.wanadoo.fr/tmcd2/CPL.htm

I tried the following on Windows XP. Maybe it could help:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=...
Run("explorer.exe /root,::{7007ACC7-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E}")
WinWaitActive("classname=CabinetWClass")
Send("{Up}{AppsKey}r")
sleep(100)
WinClose("classname=CabinetWClass")

Edit: Bugfix

Your Send statements can be simplified as follows:

Send("{LWIN}snlp")

It's a good idea to use lowercase letters, and you do not need to put braces {} around them.

Now this will fail on my computer because my Start Menu contains a top-level entry named "SciTE". Consequently, Sending "S" will select SciTE instead of opening "Settings".... Also, Windows XP has a different start menu by default.
