Network Applet (ncpa.cpl) does not open, what can I do?

Wingnut Software have created a FREE utility for Windows XP called network.exe (save into c:\windows directory) that can enable/disable network connections and connect/disconnect dialup/ADSL/VPN connections, it requires admin rights so therefore it must be run with Encrypted RunAs.

The Syntax is:

For Network Connections:

network.exe enable NamedConnection (blank for Local Area Connection)
network.exe disable NamedConnection (blank for Local Area Connection)
network.exe toggle NamedConnection (blank for Local Area Connection)

For Dialup/ADSL/VPN:

network.exe connect DialUpConnectionName
network.exe disconnect DialUpconnectionName
network.exe toggledialup DialUpconnectionName
