Find myself constantly changing NIC properties every day (switch, router, etc. config). Any happy fun command to open this dialog (.cpl or .msc) from the Run dialog?

ncpa.cpl will open up the Network Connections window.

Or you can create a Shortcut to:
C:\Windows\System32\control.exe ncpa.cpl

Official MS List of .cpl commands to access a number of Control Panel tools.

Just in case anyone else likes to also launch a particular connection within the dialog automatically, Here is a good solution.

"rasphone.exe -d "<connection name>"

One may create a shortcut to it or just use it from command line.
