following command to see the interface name
netsh interface ip show config (it was "{c43264723-2333-354623-22323}"
then I tried to assign using netsh interface ip set address
""{c43264723-2333-354623-22323}" static ipadrr subnetmask gateway metric

it consistently tells me Invalid Inetrface Specified...

Where did I go wrong..Please Help

Since there are numerous typographical errors in your post
it is a little difficult to see where you actually went wrong.
I recommend you post the following:
- The output from this command
netsh interface ip show config
- The actual command you use when attempting to set
a new IP address.
Please do not retype the above items - use cut & paste instead.
(Alt+SpaceBar, E, K, mark the desired lines with Shift+RightArrow,
press Enter when finished).

Sorry for the Confusion.

Following is the output of netsh interface ip show config

Configuration for Interface "{C2E92353-E17F-4017-B35B-4E3CF08F97BD}"
DHCP Enabled Yes
Interface metric 1
DNS Servers configured through DHCP
WINS Servers configured through DHCP

Following is the output of netsh interface ip set address
"{C2E92353-E17F-4017-B35B-4E3CF08F97BD}" static 1.2.3.4 255.0.0.0 1.2.3.1 1

Invalid Interface "{C2E92353-E17F-4017-B35B-4E3CF08F97BD}" specified

I tried removing the dashes,tried removing parenthesis but in vain.

Thanks

Try this command:

netsh interface ip set address local static 1.2.3.4 255.0.0.0 1.2.3.1 1

then build up from there when it works.
