Powershell netsh automatically run script
Is there a way to input text to notepad stating an IP Address, Subnet mask and Gateway and then running a powershell script that would execute the following netsh interface ipv4> set address name="Wireless Network Connection" source=static addr=192.xxx.x.xx mask=255.255.0.0 gateway=xxx.xxx.x.x gwmetric=0
At the moment I just type that manually in a Powershell terminal or cmd and it works (changes what i want changed) but i want to be able to just edit a notepad file and exute a batch file that would automatically do it..
i am pretty new to powershell and scripting but if someone can point me in the right direction it would be hugely appreciated.
There are many ways for you to do this. Here is one:
powershell script contents:
$properties = (Get-Content ip_properties.txt) -split ',' Invoke-Expression "netsh interface ip set address name='Wireless Network Connection' source=static addr=$($properties) mask=$($properties) gateway=$($properties) gwmetric=0"
Essentially you're supplying your interface parameters in a comma separated format, splitting the those properties into an array and then using the array elements as inputs to the netsh command
