WMI and Network Adapters: 3

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway


We have seen how to query WMI for information on network adapters.  But what we didn’t get was information about the addresses allocated to the NICs.  We need a different class for that

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration

However this gives us too much information as it includes all cards – we only want to see those with addresses

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration | where {$_.IPAddress}

Gives us the two NICs (on my machine that are live). 

To just get the addresses

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration | where {$_.IPAddress} | Foreach { $_.Description; $_ | select -ExpandProperty IPAddress}

Gives a quick view of the addresses associated with each card
