"From Microsoft's The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager:

The DevCon utility is a
command-line utility that acts as an
alternative to Device Manager. Using
DevCon, you can enable, disable,
restart, update, remove, and query
individual devices or groups of
devices. DevCon also provides
information that is relevant to the
driver developer and is not available
in Device Manager.

See Using Devcon for more info.

You may therefore use :

devcon listclass Net

to figure out the name of the network adaptor in question, then just make a bat file with for example

devcon disable *ven_14E4*<br/>
or devcon enable *ven_14E4*"

ipconfig /renew <adapter>
