Notes

The Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway cmdlet requires that the Remote Registry and RPC services are started on the computer it is trying to access and that DNS services are available to resolve target host names.

Example 1

This command will remove the gateway 192.168.0.44 from the adapter "Local Area Connection" on the local computer:

C:\PS>Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway "Local Area Connection" -gateway 192.168.0.44

Example 2

This command will remove the gateway 192.168.0.44 from the adapter "Local Area Connection" on the remote computer PC01:

C:\PS>Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway "Local Area Connection" -gateway 192.168.0.44 -computer PC01

Example 3

Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway can also be used in conjunction with the Get-NetworkAdapter cmdlet. In this example Get-NetworkAdapter fetches all the network adapters on the remote computer PC01 and Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway removes the gateway address 192.168.1.44 from the configuration of each adapter:

C:\PS>Get-NetworkAdapter -Computer PC01 | Remove-NetworkAdapterGateway 192.168.1.44
