There are two settings that I would like to learn how to automatically configure during setup. The first is to disable the IP Autoconfiguration for my network cards, the second is to enable the system tray icon for the network connection when connected (as opposed to the default of displayed only when disconnected). The registry location for both is something like this:
Of course the big ugly number is unique to the interface/NIC card, thus rendering a reg import impossible. Any ideas or a little C program out there?
The reason for disabling the AutoConfig is that if the DHCP is momentarily down when XP boots, it will (try to) keep it's previous IP address, instead of inventing a 169.*.*.* address. The reason for enabling the icon is that I like to have some idea of how the traffic is going.
EDIT Updated to include reg address posted below.
