Obtain NIC Info from Win32_NetworkAdapter & NetworkAdapterConfiguration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am obtaining system information via the Win32_ComputerSystem class with the below code and was hoping to gather the NIC info from NetworkAdapater, as well as NetworkAdapterConfiguration but get an error regarding object not set to an instance.

    This is the code I am using to gain the information from the Win32_ComputerSystem class, I dont honestly know how to tie two classes together to get NetworkAdapter and the NetworkAdapterConfiguration and was hoping for some assistance.

    I am using the below code to obtain info from Win32 classes ComputerSystem, Bios, OperatingSystem, Processor and LogicalDisk with no issues.

    Dim query as ObjectQuery = New ObjectQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem")
    DIM Searcher As ManagementObjectSearcher = New ManagementObjectSearcher(scope, query)
    Dim moreturn as System.Management.MangementObjectCollection
    Dim mo as Management.ManagementObject
    moreturn = searcher.get
    For Each mo in moreturn
    Manufacturer = (mo("Manufacturer").ToString)
    Catch manuIssue as exception
    msgbox("Manufactured Issues: " & manIssues.Message)
    End Try

  • This generates the same thing I was able to generate, no IP address info on NICS i have static information on.

    Any clue?

  • If I add my main network adapter to get 1 result in the Select, I get my IP address :

    Dim searcher As New ManagementObjectSearcher(
            "SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where Description ='Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter'")
    For Each queryObj As ManagementObject In searcher.Get()
        Console.WriteLine("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration instance")
        If queryObj("IPAddress") Is Nothing Then
            Console.WriteLine("IPAddress: {0}", queryObj("IPAddress"))
            Dim arrIPAddress As String()
            arrIPAddress = queryObj("IPAddress")
            For Each arrValue As String In arrIPAddress
                Console.WriteLine("IPAddress: {0}", arrValue)
        End If

  • I don't understand what you need.

    I assume this is for a remote system. You know the name of the remote system since you need it for the scope. So you use the same scope to get the Win32_NetworkAdapter and Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration objects.

    You say don't "know how to tie two classes together" but I am not clear what you need help with.
