    Urgh... I'm gonna present you with the expression "doh!". I found out the problem.

    My network had localized characters which the netsh prompt does not understand. My network was named "Lokalt nätverk" where "ä" is a big no-no. I renamed it to "LAN" and 'lo and behold, batch script working flawless.

    Thanks ALOT for all your time fellas.
