SetGateways method of the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class

The SetGateways WMI class method specifies a list of gateways for routing packets to a subnet that is different from the subnet that the network adapter is connected to.

This topic uses Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method, see Calling a Method.

Syntax


uint32 SetGateways(
  [in]  string DefaultIPGateway[],
  [in]  uint16 GatewayCostMetric[]
);

Parameters

DefaultIPGateway [in]

List of IP addresses to gateways where network packets are routed.

GatewayCostMetric [in]

Assigns a value that ranges from 1 to 9999, which is used to calculate the fastest and most reliable routes. The values of this parameter correspond with the values in the DefaultIPGateway parameter. The default value for a gateway is 1.
