De activating network interface

By Bayk ·
This is a question I have already posted a week ago but it seems it has disappeared into nether land.

Does anyone know of a method to de-activate a network interface on Windows 2000 using a script or a command line executable?

Thank you for your help.

Please see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 311272. In it is a link to a command line utility
you can download called DevCon. It will do exactly what you want.

I have finally worked out how to differenciate between my network interfaces.
Many thanks to my Lebanese contributor.

the DEVCON tool looked promising except its use is not obvious. Here is an apparent shortfall: to launch the command to disable one of my network cards by specifying its hardware ID I typed:

devcon disable PCI\VEN_10B7&DEV_9200&SUBSYS_00A71028&REV_78\4&1472819D&0&40F0

only the following characters of the hardware ID are taken into account

As these are common to the two network interfaces on my machine both were disabled together.
I would like to be able to disable them one at a time.
Any ideas?
