Here's a tip from my colleague Ed Wilson (a.k.a. The Scripting Guy at Microsoft) that shows you how to use Windows PowerShell to find network adapter binding information.

Question: How can you use Windows PowerShell on Windows 8 or above to find network adapter binding information?

Answer: Use the Get-NetAdapterBinding function, specify the adapter name, and select the name, bindname and enabled properties. This appears here.
