Assign Static IP Via Registry

Does anyone know how to set a static IP via registry? I'm on the MK4000 device w/ WinCE 5.0. I've tried the following, but it doesn't seem to work.

Perhaps VMINI1 isn't the right port to target? Not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

; Enable static IP address

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\VMINI1\Parms\Tcpip]

"EnableDHCP"=dword:0 ; Disable the DHCP/ enable static IP

"IPAddress"="192.168.1.9"

"SubnetMask"="255.255.255.0"

"DefaultGateway"="192.168.1.1"

If you are using the wired

If you are using the wired Ethernet port, the below should work.

; set static IP address[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\SMSC92111\Parms\TcpIp]"WINS"=multi_sz:""

"DNS"=multi_sz:"""DefaultGateway"=multi_sz:"192.168.128.1","""Subnetmask"=multi_sz:"255.255.255.0","""IpAddress"=multi_sz:"192.168.128.211","""EnableDHCP"=dword:00000000

If you are using wireless, you need to set the IP address using the Fusion app on the device.  This builds some registry entries, but they are not readable as plain text.
