SetIPXFrameTypeNetworkPairs method of the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class

Sets the Internetworking Packet Exchange (IPX) network number/frame pairs for this network adapter.

Windows 2000 and Windows NT 3.51 and higher use an IPX network number for routing purposes. It is assigned to each configured frame type/network adapter combination on your computer system. This number is sometimes referred to as the "external network number." It must be unique for each network segment. If the frame type is set to AUTO, the network number should to zero.

IPXNetworkNumber [in]

An array of characters that uniquely identify an adapter on the computer system. The NetWare Link (NWLink) IPX/SPX-compatible transport in Windows 2000 and Windows NT 3.51 or higher, uses two different types of network numbers. This number is sometimes referred to as the External Network Number. It must be unique for each network segment. The values in this string list must have a corresponding value in the IPXFrameType parameter identifying the packet frame type used for this network.

IPXFrameType [in]

An integer array of frame type identifiers. The values in this array correspond to the elements in the IPXNetworkNumber parameter.
