Factory Default Network Connection Windows

Anyone know how to set a network connection back to default factory state on a windows box?

I have 2 network cards with 4 ports each in a server. I need to set 7 of them back to the default settings to wipe all the settings that have been changed over the years but cant seem to find a way to do this.

Any ideas?



Reset TCP/IP is a good way to do this:
Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then netsh int ip reset c:resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

You can also reinstall the NIC driver but basic reset should suffice.

That will reset every network connection/adapter though right? I would like to only reset 7 of the 8 on the server because one is active.



Note the settings, allow the reset, and set up the one NIC again. That is how I would approach it.



I figured out how to do it individually. You have to go to device manager, uninstall the adapter you want to reset, and then scan for hardware changes and individual adapters are reset.



So you reset 7. I suggested resetting ALL and setting up 1. It seems pretty similar to me.
