    Hi I am looking for a 2 Script

    1. To Turn All Network Devices off - So computers if offline and cant connect to the Internet
    2. To Turn all Network Devices on again

    I am trying to run a program is after a fresh install - I have done this but it ideally need to be offline but after its installed then it enables again.

    Im able to create a script to run these programs but cant seem to see a script for this.

    I have a nice little .vbs script to turn off the network..

    Code:
    '~ Toggle a SPECIFIED NIC on or off
    Option Explicit
    
    Const NETWORK_CONNECTIONS = &H31&
    
    Dim objShell, objFolder, objFolderItem, objEnable, objDisable
    Dim folder_Object, target_NIC
    Dim NIC, clsVerb
    Dim str_NIC_Name, strEnable, strDisable
    Dim bEnabled, bDisabled
    
    ' ========================================================
    ' ===== place the name of your network adapter here ======
    ' examples:
    ' str_NIC_Name = "Local Area Connection 2"
    ' str_NIC_Name = "Wireless Connection 1"
    ' ========================================================
    str_NIC_Name = "Ethernet"
    ' ========================================================
    
    strEnable = "En&able"
    strDisable = "Disa&ble"
    
    ' create objects and get items
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(NETWORK_CONNECTIONS)
    Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self
    Set folder_Object = objFolderItem.GetFolder
    
    ' see if the namespace exists
    If folder_Object Is Nothing Then
        Wscript.Echo "Could not find Network Connections"
        WScript.Quit
    End If
    
    Set target_NIC = Nothing
    
    ' look at each NIC and match to the chosen name
    For Each NIC In folder_Object.Items
        If LCase(NIC.Name) = LCase(str_NIC_Name) Then
            ' proper NIC is found, get it
            Set target_NIC = NIC
        End If
    Next
    
    If target_NIC Is Nothing Then
        WScript.Echo "Unable to locate proper NIC"
        WScript.Quit
    End If
    
    bEnabled = True
    Set objEnable = Nothing
    Set objDisable = Nothing
    
    For Each clsVerb In target_NIC.Verbs
        '~ Wscript.Echo clsVerb
        If clsVerb.Name = strEnable Then
            Set objEnable = clsVerb
            bEnabled = False
        End If
        If clsVerb.Name = strDisable Then
            Set objDisable = clsVerb
        End If
    Next
    
    If bEnabled Then
        objDisable.DoIt
    Else
        objEnable.DoIt
    End If
    
    '~ Give the connection time to stop/start
    WScript.Sleep 1000
    WScript.Quit
    
    This is saved as
    and placed in Windows.



    Then I use this little REG edit to add it to the Context menu

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Toggle NIC]
    "icon"="MyIcons.dll,26"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Toggle NIC\command]
    @="WScript C:\\Windows\\ToggleNIC.vbs"
    
    
    Of course you would have to change the icon location if you wanted to use one.

    Works a treat for me.

    This is for a cable connected to an ethernet port though.

    You need to know the names of the active network adapters. Use any of these command lines from Powershell:

    Code:
    (Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object {$_.Status -EQ “Up”} | Format-List)
    or
    (Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object {$_.AdminStatus -EQ “Up”}).Name
    or
    (Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object {$_.Status -EQ “Up”}).Name
    
    Alternatively, you can use this command::
    Code:
    ([System.Net.NetworkInformation.NetworkInterface]::GetAllNetworkInterfaces())
    or
    ([System.Net.NetworkInformation.NetworkInterface]::GetAllNetworkInterfaces()) | Select-Object Name,OperationalStatus
