Chapter 7. Network Configuration > Change settings for a network adapter

7.1. Change settings for a network adapter

In Windows 9x and Windows NT, network configuration was easy to find. You right-clicked Network Neighborhood, chose Properties, and there it was. In Windows 2000 it's actually a little easier, even though it might seem like there is an extra step involved. The benefit in Windows 2000 is that network properties for each interface are separate, an advantage on multihomed systems.

7.1.1. Find your network settings

The Network and Dial-Up Connections folder contains the settings for each of your computer's network interfaces. In a multihomed system with multiple network adapters, for example, you'll find an icon for each adapter. Also appearing in the folder are dial-up connections (modem, VPN, etc.) and an icon for incoming connections if your computer is configured as a dial-up server.
