Network manager for windows 7 using cmd.exe

'cmd.exe'

Updated version of the script. Now it allows you to enable/disable the network interfaces

Hi there

Lately I have been changing the network properties (ip addresses, netmask, etc etc) in my laptop (W7 Enterprise 64b) several times per day, and to be honest I am growing tired of it, so I created a small bat script in order to make my life easier

The script is pretty simple... It might be handy for you as well, so here you are:

@ECHO OFF
SET OPTION=

goto :MENU
