Computer Support - Changing An IP Address With The Set Command (Windows XP)


When you use the set command in the NetShell tool (Netsh.exe) to modify the properties of an Internet Protocol (IP) address, you may receive the following error message: "A device attached to the system is not functioning." This problem may occur when you use the set command to make changes to an IP address that's created automatically by the system. You can't use the set command to make changes to IP addresses that are identified as Link, Public, and Temporary. However, you can use the set command to make changes to IP addresses that are identified as Manual.
