I'm trying to write a batch file to set the local IP address to static as
follows:

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" source=static
addr=10.0.0.55 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=10.0.5.1

I keep getting "the syntex for this command is not valid" What's worng with
it... Any help would be much appreciated.

When you specify a gateway address, you also have to specify a value
for the gateway metric. For example:

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection"
source=static addr=10.0.0.55 mask=255.255.255.0
gateway=10.0.5.1 gwmetric=10
