Binding order change not kept on Windows 10/2016

Binding order change not kept on Windows 10/2016

Q. I change the binding order of adapters in Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 but the changes to not save. How do I change the order?

A. In Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 there are no components that still use the binding order therefore any changes are not saved. If you wish to change the priority of a specific network card you can achieve this with PowerShell:

  1. Open an elevated PowerShell windows
  2. List the adapters in your machine
    netstat -rn
  3. Change the metric using Get-NetIPInterface to see metrics then change with Set-NetIPInterface, for example:
    Set-NetIPInterface -InterfaceIndex <index> -InterfaceMetric <new metric>
