Enable access to properties of components of a LAN connection

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network and Dial-up Connections


Determines whether users can change the properties of components used by a local area connection.

This policy determines whether the Properties button for components of a local area connection is enabled. If you enable this policy or do not configure it, the Properties button is enabled. If you disable this policy, the Properties button is disabled.

The Properties button opens the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box, which includes a list of the network components that the connection uses. To view or change the properties of a component, click the name of the component, and then click the Properties button beneath the component list.

Note Image Note

Not all network components have configurable properties. For components that are not configurable, the Properties button is always disabled.
