Windows Server: How to Modify the Advanced Properties of a Broadcom Network Adapter in Windows Server Core Using the Registry

Article Summary: This article provides information on enabling and disabling network adapters in a Server Core (non-GUI) installation of Windows Server.

Without access to the Broadcom Advanced Control Suite in a Server Core installation of Windows Server, you may have to edit an adapter's advanced properties through the registry. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. In Registry Editor (regedit), go to the following location:

  2. Search for Broadcom. You will see something similar to the following:

  3. To identify the adapter that you are working with, perform the following steps:
    1. Note (copy) the GUID in the REG_DWORD value NetCfgInstanceId (see below).

    1. Search for the GUID in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.

    1. In the Connection key under this GUID, you will find a REG_SZ value called Name. This is the name of the adapter.
    2. Repeat Steps 1-3 until you have found the adapter for which you want to modify the settings.
  4. Go back to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\<number> .
    Note: <number> is the key number associated with the adapter (0006 in this example).
  5. Next, you will need to find the setting that you want to modify and the possible values for the setting.
    1. The possible values are found in the following location:


    Note: <number> is the key number associated with the adapter (0006 in this example), and <setting> is the setting that you want to modify (*FlowControl in this example).

    1. Modify the setting in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\<number> that corresponds with the value from the desired setting in step 5a (for this example, 2147483648 for *FlowControl).

  6. Repeat this process for all settings on the adapters in the system that you want to modify.
