This is a handy command to ensure that your cloned-from-template Virtual Guests always gets Network Interfaces (NICs) starting with index of 1.

  1. Open command prompt as administrator and type:  netsh int ipv4 reset
  2. Then type: set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
  3. Open up Device Manager by typing: start devmgmt.msc
  4. Click View->Show Hidden Devices
  5. Uninstall any Ethernet Adapter listed under the “Network Adapters” folder.
  6. Shutdown or Reboot your VM. Whenever a new network connection appears, it should now start with index #1, and so on.
