I’m trying to create a context-menu item to run ForceBindIP. I saw a similar question that discusses doing this, but I don’t know how to find the GUID for my network interface.

Where can I find it?


You find the GUIDs of your NICs manually through the registry, or you can find them a little more easily from the command-prompt:

  1. Run the Service snap-in (services.msc)
  2. Start the Wired AutoConfig and WLAN AutoConfig services if they are not already running
  3. Open a command-prompt
  4. Run the following command:

    netsh lan show interfaces
    netsh wlan show interfaces

The first command will list wired network adapters, along with their GUIDs, and the second will display wireless NICs.
