NIC IP addresses are in the registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Services\<NIC Card driver>\Parameters\Tcpip in a
value named IPAddress where <NIC Card Driver> is the device driver name for
your NIC, such as NE2000 or E100B. Be sure to match up the SubnetMask value
as well. You have to use REGEDT32 - Regedit doesn't support REG_MULTI_SZ
values. If you don't fully understand what you're doing, you may not want to
do this. Manually editing the registry is risky business! But I have used
this method successfully to transfer 126 IP addresses from one card to
another in about 30 seconds.

Subject: changing nic

I wish to remove an older 16 bit isa 10mb nic and replace it with a 10/100
card pci. How can I keep it so I don't have to reenter all the ips for the
the card does not seem to function on ne2000 driver.
